In the houses of Montague and Capulet, there is only one goal: power. The boys are born to fight and die for honour and – if they survive – marry for influence and money, not love. The girls are assets, to be spent wisely. Their wishes are of no import. Their fates are written on the day they are born. Benvolio Montague, cousin to Romeo, knows all this. He expects to die for his cousin, for his house, but a spark of rebellion still lives inside him. At night, he is the Prince of Shadows, the greatest thief in Verona – and he risks all as he steals from House Capulet. In doing so, he sets eyes on convent-bound Rosaline, and a terrible curse begins that will claim the lives of many.
Jetting off to the heart of New York City, best friends Jen, Serena, Erica and Megan are on the mini-break adventure of a lifetime. For shopaholic Megan, it’s time to hit the designer rails of Manhattan. But can Megan form a relationship other than with her parent-funded credit card? For hard-working trainee chef Erica, she finally gets to meet her online ‘boyfriend’. But will he match up to his high-flying profile? For celebrity-stalker Jen, their glamorous hotel is a dream come true. But will Jen’s illusions be shattered when she comes face to face with her party-loving idol? And for shy, cultured Serena, the Lincoln Centre and the Metropolitan Museum of Art are going to be the highlights of the weekend. But can she relax enough to let a real life Romeo into her life?
Just Listen by Sarah Dessen:
I’m Annabel. I’m the girl who has it all. Model looks, confidence, a great social life. I’m one of the lucky ones. Aren’t I? My ‘best friend’ is spreading rumours about me. My family is slowly falling apart. It’s turning into a long, lonely summer, full of secrets and silence. But I’ve met this guy who won’t let me hide away. He’s one of those intense types, obsessed with music. He’s determined to make me listen. And he’s determined to make me smile. But can he help me forget what happened the night everything changed?
