August 9, 2011
Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Synopsis:
The most tragic love story in history . . .
Juliet Capulet didn’t take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn’t anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light. For 700 years, she’s fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent. Until the day she meets someone she’s forbidden to love, and Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy that love.
Why I’m Excited:
So I love the story of Romeo and Juliet and I can’t wait to see how Jay sets it up. =) Love the idea of putting a paranormal/immortality twist on it!! Also, I love each and every one of Stacey’s books so I know this one will be amazing! August 9th can’t get here fast enough!!

    So I guess Bailey's mom (that's me) will be taking her to the bookstore on the 9th since she can't drive due to foot surgery this week. This book looks food to mom because I did not like how original story ended and not a Romeo fan.
