Title
Othello
Author
William Shakespeare
characters
Othello, Desdamona, Iago
Title
In the story there is to much to explain the ravishing words of the character. Iago the mastermind and the manipulator. Othello the insecure and the easily fooled. and then there's Desdamona, the naive girl who has no clue she's is being despised and hated from her husband by the clever Iago. Truly if you wanted a story with this much romance, loyalty, and death read this explosive story about two lovers who are being toyed with the mastermind.

Title
The Outsiders
Author
S.E. Hinton
characters
Ponyboy, Johnny, Dallas,
Title
Not even a single word can explain how great this book is. Some much loyalty, trust, and death. But most of all what really flair the most is the fact of not giving up on each other. Whether someone is in prison or someone about to die.
