At least, I wanted to be.
So I did something stupid to make it happen.
Well, stupid and wonderful.
I wanted the role of Juliet more than anything. I studied hard. I gave a great reading for it—even with Bobby checking me out the whole time. I deserved the part.
I didn’t get it. So I decided to level the playing field, though I actually might have leveled the whole play. You see, since there aren’t any Success in Getting to Be Juliet in Your High School Play spells, I thought I’d cast the next best—a Fame spell. Good idea, right?
Yeah. Instead of bringing me a little fame, it brought me someone a little famous. Shakespeare. Well, Edmund Shakespeare. William’s younger brother.
Good thing he’s sweet and enthusiastic about helping me with the play...and—ahem—maybe a little bit hot. But he’s from the past. Way past. Cars amaze him—cars! And cell phones? Ugh.
Still, there’s something about him that’s making my eyes go star-crossed....

This book was received as an ARC from Netgalley!
When I first heard about this book I thought it sounded really interesting, and I thought the cover was amazing! I actually really enjoyed Romeo and Juliet in school so I thought this would be a great fun read!
Overall, I enjoyed this book but at times it felt rushed. I also didn't love the main character, Miri that much. She just did not really stand out as the protagonist for me.
The other thing I did not really like was how Miri's mother reacted so well to have Edmund in her house. It just did not feel realistic at all.
Overall, this was book was a fun read, but it was not what I was expecting.
My Rating: Three out of Five Stars
