Synopsis

Life After Juliet by Shannon Alexander

Becca Hanson has spent a lifetime traveling the world, all from the comfort of her own bedroom. Becca is a reader, a voracious one. And with all those fictional friends, she never had time for real ones. Plus, real ones come with uncontrollable quirks, like constantly filling a room with song, drawing on any available surface, and, worst of all, dying. Since her best friend Charlotte's death six months ago, Becca has returned to a life of books in order to distance herself from heartache and constant loneliness. When Becca finds herself pulled into the school's drama club for its production of Romeo and Juliet, she starts getting noticed by people. By boys. As it turns out, kissing is a lot better in real life than on a page. But she's still dealing with the grief of Charlotte's death; the fact that her brother, Charlie, is away at MIT; and that she finally has to build a life for herself on her own terms. Becca will soon find that love and life are a lot more complicated in the real world and that happy endings aren't always guaranteed if you can't stand up and grab them.
