The Lovereading4Kids comment

This debut is one of our Books' of the Month for January, along with another debut we’re wild about – Darkside. Star-crossed is the real thing – a book by a teenager for teenagers. An enormously talented debut novelist has come up with a fast-moving, compelling and surprising love story of Romeo and Juliet for the 21st Century with a school setting. Readers will love (and love to hate) the characters as they are totally cool, totally entertaining, totally sassy and totally clever.

Synopsis

Star-Crossed by Rachael Wing

Based loosely on Romeo and Juliet, Rachael brings this classic story up-to-date with a contemporary setting in an English school. Told in the unusual second person, the reader will be immediately caught up in the pace, humour and magical plot of Star-Crossed. Rachael's age and her familiarity with teenage life shine though in the realism of her characters and the eventual uplifting outcome of the plot.
