Publisher's Summary

Otello is South America’s star soccer player and has just signed a deal to play for a team in the southern part of his country, a region with a history of racism toward black northerners like Otello. Desmerelda is a white pop star and the daughter of a right-wing politician.

Their sudden and controversial marriage propels them to center stage, where they burn under the media spotlight. But celebrity attracts enemies -  some very close to home. When a young girl is found murdered, Paul Faustino, veteran soccer reporter for La Nación, witnesses the power of the media in making - and breaking -  lives.

Overall a good read

This is a modern retelling of Shakespeare's "Othello." I love Mal Peet stories. This one took a while to hook me. However, it was overall a very good story. I would not recommend it for those under the age of 15 or so due to some language and some sexual content (not very graphic, but still there).
