A Wounded Name

By Dot Hutchison

Vividly reimagines Hamlet into a great contemporary dark YA context. Gorgeous prose.

A Wounded Name is a reimagining of the world and story of Hamlet-all from Opehlia's perspective and set in a darkly anachronistic American boarding school (trust me, it works well). Tessa Gratton (author of Blood Magic and The Songs of New Asgard series) has already read it and wrote, "Madness, passion, gorgeous word-play, and the inexorable spiral into tragedy: A Wounded Name embodies everything I love from Hamlet"

  • Smart, sexy, and totally unique.
  • See lWYNK for excellent blurbs.

About the author

When not immersed in the worlds-between-pages, she can frequently be found dancing around like an idiot, tracing stories in the stars, or waiting for storms to roll in from the ocean. She currently lives in Florida. A Wounded Name is her debut novel. Visit her on line at
