"This is the cutest, shippiest, smart-mouthiest book, possibly ever, and I loved every page. I adored Molly Booth's debut, SAVING HAMLET, and am so, so happy that we are getting another witty, captivating, and inclusive Shakespeare-inspired novel in NOTHING HAPPENED. I give it five captured flags, five withering comebacks, five schmoopy love texts, and five hey-nonny-nonnies!" – Caleb Roehrig, author of Last Seen Leaving and White Rabbit
"This modern-day retelling of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing takes place at the idyllic Camp Dogberry, where sisters Bee and Hana Leonato have grown up. Their parents own the place, and every summer they look forward to leading little campers in crafts, swimming in the lake, playing games of capture the flag and sproutball, and of course, the legendary counselor parties.
This year, the camp drama isn’t just on the improv stage. Bee and longtime counselor Ben have a will-they-or-won’t-they romance that’s complicated by events that happened—or didn’t happen—last summer. Meanwhile, Hana is falling hard for the kind but insecure Claudia, putting them both in the crosshairs of resident troublemaker John, who spreads a vicious rumor that could tear them apart.
As the counselors juggle their camp responsibilities with simmering drama that comes to a head at the Fourth of July sparkler party, they’ll have to swallow their pride and find the courage to untangle the truth, whether it leads to heartbreak or happily ever after."
