Romeo and Juliet

Author: William Shakespeare
Reviewer's Age: Grade 8

This book describes the love of two teenagers who belong to families at war with each other. Romeo and Juliet keep their love a secret from their families and eventually elope [but tragedy follows]. I loved this book because it presented so many important lessons in a well-written book full of irony. Not only does this book show how hate can cause such a tragedy, it envelops the reader in a love story with a quality you're not likely to find in modern romance novels.
