    " The classic story retold, but updated to today. Romiette is an African-American girl from Cincinnati, OH. Julio is a transfer student from Corpus Christi, TX. They meet in a chat room and are instantly drawn to each other. But not everyone likes the idea of these two being a couple. Spoiler: This book has a happier ending than the original. "

    " This story is about a latino named Julio who moves away and meets an african american named Romiette. Julio and Romiette have to go through the struggles of being an inter racial couple. They were both kidnapped and almost killed by a horrible storm when they were thrown into the river.If Julio would have not been able to save Romiette since she is does not know how to swim Romiette would have died drowning.

    " I thought this book was very corny. It was such a bad spin off of the classic. The characters were flat and so cheesy. The plot was very predictable and the names are so ridiculous. Even though I did not like to read it, I could see some young adults enjoying the book. I think girls would like this book. I think the idea of finding your soul mate and forbidden love would attract the females. "

    " This book was good. I like it because it was intresting enough to keep me reading, and its something people deal with in the real world. Some things i didn't like was that sometimes the author would repeat some things over and over. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peyton Anderson | 1/19/2014

    " Oh, I loved this book so much. So sweet! I had to read it for Battle of the Books and I honestly didn't think I would like it, but I ended up loving it! In the book Julio is so sweet, the perfect boyfriend. I hope you all decide to read it. Happy Reading! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay Kovel | 1/29/2013

    " I am in love with this book. I keep dogearing pages to use for a parallel reading with my freshman. I recommend this book wholeheartedly. It adds a new element to a tale we all know. It updates the story with an interesting spin on events. Seriously, I'm not able to put it down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Valerie | 9/5/2012

    " once again- 7th grade English teacher. I can't believe I read this all the way through, and while it's cute for little kids, I'm not looking forward to reading it over and over again as I teach it. It is, however, a unique spin on Romeo and Juliette, and a weird transformation into another genre. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Star | 5/15/2012

    " I loved the concept of turning a classic shakesphere play into a modern tale. I like how sharon uses interrcial couples and reallt sheds light on the subject of gangs and how they effect everyone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly Gordon | 5/6/2012

    " this book is about two people named Romiette and Julio who meet at school when Julio transfers. They then share similar opinions about how they feel towards gangs. When the two finally go out they face many problems with gangs. "

    " I read this when I was in middle school and I still remember how good it was. A modern twist to Romeo and Juliet. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily Mccann | 9/22/2011

    " This book taught me that you have to be a very talented writer to use an omniscient narrator. Sharon M. Draper is not that talented. Also, I think she stopped reading Romeo and Juliet after the second act. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Misty | 9/3/2011

    " A great choice for parallel reading or for students who love Romeo and Juliet. "

    " well I only read up to like page 79 so I really dont know what its all about. Its mostly about how a girl and a guy met a this high school and end up going out

    This book was really not my book I disliked. I disliked, it wasnt as interesting as I thought it would be. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bianca | 5/8/2011

    " Tries to put Romeo and Juliette into a modern, urban, setting. I read it when I was a teeny bopper...It can be really appealing to yound adolescents but not now in my twenties. "

    " This book was awesome!! I felt like I was actually in the book but as a spy that no one can see. Its a book of romance and drama between a gang, Romiette, and Julio. If you haven't read this book before, you should because its a terrific book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (im saying this in my boring voice) "
