DeLibhrarie (Nichole) Review:
This was such a light, fluffy read. I flew through it. But I was disappointed by the lack of depth I guess you could say. I thought that it was cute and fun and had a lot of potential, however I thought it was missing something that could have made it an epic book. But then again, when working with such a hugely romanticized and adored story such as that of Romeo and Juliet, you're going to have some high expectations. But the writing was great and it flowed well... The characters were well developed and interesting... It was definitely a new take/version on Romeo and Juliet. It just wasn't my favorite. But I know of some people who really enjoyed this book so pick it up but only if it's your type of book. Great summer read in my opinion!
