Title: “Rome and What’s Her Name” by Shani Petroff
Genre: Teen/ Ya Contemporary
Published: Feb. 7th by Swoon Reads
Understudies never get to perform
. . . which is why being Juliet’s understudy in the school’s yearly “Evening with Shakespeare” is the perfect role for Emily. She can earn some much-needed extra credit while pursuing her main goal of spending time with Wes, aka Romeo, aka the hottest, nicest guy in school (in her completely unbiased opinion). And she meant to learn her lines, really, it’s just:
a) Shakespeare is HARD,
b) Amanda, aka the “real” Juliet, makes her run errands instead of lines, and
c) there’s no point because Amanda would never miss the chance to be the star of the show.
Then, Amanda ends up in the hospital and Emily, as the (completely unprepared!) understudy, has to star opposite the guy of her dreams. Oops?
My thoughts and Review:
~ I finished this book yesterday and all I have to say is I LOVED IT!!! this book was HILARIOUS!! OMG, You guys have no Idea how many time I laughed out loud. Just by the title alone you know there is a Romeo and Juliet scene happening somehow but the way the author created everything. I was in tears of laughter. I couldn’t drink water through a particular scene for fear of spilling. I loved it!
Since my reading slump was off and On this book shook it off completely and let me read my book in peace. The main character Emily was sooo funny and is definitely relate able. I cringed at times to her embarrassing moments. I felt for her, got shy with her, laughedwith her. I was always like “Why did you! Stop!” but of course it was too late….(^.^)> lol.
I enjoyed all her characters, all the scenes, the reading was easy to go into. I really enjoyed the authors writing. It was perfect for me! This book was adorable, funny, cute, witty, giddy, light, easy, overall Loved it!
I recommend this book! If your in a reading slump this baby is your cure. If your a Jenny Han fan this book is for you. If you like funny light reads this book is for you. IF YOU WANT TO LAUGH read it!!
I saw that goodreads does not have a high rating which is too bad cause this was a fun read in my opinion. So make your own judgment and check it out!
