A new high school drama teacher is hired for Eleanor Roosevelt High School and she selects the Greek play, Lysistrata as the annual school play. The play tells the story of how Lysistrata encourages the women of her town to withhold sex as a sign of protest to end the Peloponnesian War. Soon after rehearsals begin a strange thing happens, a spell is cast among the women and girls of the high school. Everybody who’s in a relationship pulls away physically from their partner causing the men to be left confused and rejected.
I was drawn to this book mainly because of the hype of the author’s previous book, The Ten Year Nap. I was not disappointed. It’s a fast, easy, read, that makes you wonder about man-woman relationships and what makes them tick.
