"Death, betrayal, ruthless plots to seize the 'crown'--all the seeds of stage tragedy take root and flourish in this clever modern-day homage to Macbeth. High school is rife with just enough passion and treachery to set a suitable stage for some Shakespearean-level drama." --Kirkus Reviews
"Fun-filled escapades into Shakespeare's The Tempest and Macbeth...they're an absolute riot! You don't have to be a Shakespeare fan (I'm not) or even have read these plays (I haven't) to fall in love with these books. I can't wait for the next Twisted Lit adventure. It's the best new young adult series of the year!" --Jack and Jill Magazine
"Askew and Helmes' adaptation adds a certain zest to the original play. Through well-paced writing, complicated romance, and a relatable protagonist, the reader has the ability to view a literary classic in a new and enjoyable way. I would recommend Exposure to readers that are interested in modern adaptations of Shakespearean plays in the young adult age group." --Blogcritics
"Exposure clicked with me right away. There's a lot to like in this novel...the events fell into place not by design, but as a series of choices, actions, and reactions that led naturally from each other. Equal parts teen drama and classic adaptation, I could definitely see this actually being a movie on par with 10 Things I Hate About You." --Drown My Books
"In the second book of the Twisted Lit series, Kim Askew and Amy Helmes brings an interesting adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth. Overall Exposure is a great read. It says so much about ambition, guilt, betrayal, and love in an enjoyable well-paced story that'll definitely leave you satisfied." --SAB Book Reviews
"After reading the witty and enchanting Tempestuous ... I was beyond excited to read Exposure. Exposure turned out to be a great follow-up novel ... fun characters, a little romance, and a tad bit of mystery. Exposure is another fast paced and fun read, perfect for fans of Meg Cabot." --Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf blog
"A fun YA twist on Shakespeare in the same modern vein as the movie 10 Things I Hate About You." --Excellent Library blog
"Shakespeare is hot again. Merit Press... is basing two of its first five debut releases on Shakespeare retellings. Tempestuous [is] a humorous reimagining of The Tempest. The Twisted Lit novels hope to... make Shakespeare more appealing to today's teens. Expect to see Shakespeare throughout all forms of media in 2013 as a new generation of media consumer rediscovers the timeless literary treasures of William Shakespeare." - Forbes.com
"This is a cute, quick read. It still stands--and works well--as a story all its own. I think it would be really neat to read this book when I was in high school, shortly after reading Macbeth for the first time." - Book Nerds Across America
The characters are well developed and the story keeps you very interested even surprising you at times.
Exposure was a fun, quick read and I was really excited to read it after reading the first book in the Twisted Lit series.
I just feel like she is very naive, and she doesn't change very much throughout the course of the book.
How I love these books. I feel like for the past two days I've been living on a Twisted Lit cloud. When I finished Tempesteous I started Exposure right away. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Stephanie Verhaegen (Bookfever)

I never read Macbeth and I’m kind of glad, because I didn't make mental comparisons between the two stories while I was reading and was just free to enjoy it. Read morePublished 12 months ago by SouthGenie
This book is a really fun read! Love the characters (including the witches) and the references to Shakespeare's MacBeth! I highly recommend this book!Published 13 months ago by Dianne Askew
First off, I just want to say that although this is the second book in the series, this book can be read as a standalone since it involves a whole new cast of characters, plot, and... Read morePublished 16 months ago by Heather C.
Skye is a bit of a wallflower, a shutterbug who prefers to see life through the lens of her camera instead of from the center of the action. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Ariel Avalon
