Think you know the story of Romeo and Juliet? Think again because in this book, you can change the plot, many many times. Think Romeo should go to Brunch with his boy Benvolio? Cool. What if Juliet should be a badass Crossfit chick? That’s cool too. Sure, there are bits and pieces of the original play woven throughout this book, but you also get to see the star crossed lovers in all sorts of wacky situations.
It’s a great book simply because it’s unlike anything I’ve ever read before. It’s also nice because you can pick it up and put it down whenever you like. The concept and joke style can get a little old after a while, so this one is best read by picking at it – follow a quick adventure as Romeo, wait a few days, then see what Juliet’s nurse would do in that situation. This could also be a cute white elephant or office secret santa gift.
3.5 out of 5 stars
