Juliet (Anne Fortier)
As Julie crosses the paths of the families who turned medieval Siena upside down, she begins to realise that the "notorious curse" on both households is still at work.
Spanning centuries, "Juliet" is an unforgettable adventure that hopes to rewrite the fate of the star-crossed lovers and reunite them at last.
Quote: "Of all the great love stories ever told, hers is perhaps the most famous. To me, she is the key to my family's fate. To you, she is Juliet."
Why this book speaks to me: Being in love with all Shakespeare works, Romeo & Juliet has been, by far, my all time favourite. Here, Anne Fortier brings this fabulous love story into the modern times, putting together all the necessary elements, such as a love story, adventure, humour, suspense, danger and the most amazing description of Italian Siena. Although I have not finished it yet, I just had to talk about this book because once I started reading it, I could not stop. This really is an amazing story and worth every second!
