Description

An intensely romantic, modern recounting of the greatest love story ever told—narrated by the girl Romeo was supposed to love.

Rosaline knows that she and Rob are destined to be together. Rose has been waiting for years for Rob to kiss her—and when he finally does, it’s perfect. But then Juliet moves back to town. Juliet, who used to be Rose’s best friend. Juliet, who now inexplicably hates her. Juliet, who is gorgeous, vindictive, and a little bit crazy...and who has set her sights on Rob. He doesn’t stand a chance.

Rose is devastated over losing Rob to Juliet. And when rumors start swirling about Juliet’s instability, her neediness, and her threats of suicide, Rose starts to fear not only for Rob’s heart, but also for his life. Because Shakespeare may have gotten the story wrong, but we all still know how it ends.

Publishers Weekly Review

30 April 2012 – History forgot Rosaline, the girl Romeo loved before Juliet, and the clever premise of this underdeveloped but still satisfying romance is an updated imagining of Rosaline's story. Rose Caplet lives next door to Rob Montag, her male best friend who becomes something more as they begin senior year at their posh Southern California private school. But then Rose's estranged cousin, Juliet, and her family move back to town, and Rob is instantly smitten. The cousins were close before their families had a falling out for reasons Rose later discovers, and Rose is devastated by Juliet's betrayal. Serle's debut mirrors the plotting of the original play, but events are filtered through Rose's perspective, with Rob and Juliet kept at a distance. Tapping into familiar Shakespearian devices, Serle places Rob and Juliet in a school production of Macbeth; Rose's role as a stagehand enables her to eavesdrop on their stormy interactions. Though Rob and Juliet are disappointingly one-dimensional, Rose's pain and growth feel legitimate, and her love interest, Len, is distinctive. But it's Rose's longtime friendship with girlfriends Charlie and Olivia that form the heart of the story. Ages 14–up.
