The Montes love Italian food. And they hate the Caputos, That's how it is. It's been that way for sixty years. Every time the Caputos start to get a reputation for great pizza (and who knows? It could be better than the Montes!) there's "an accident" and Cap's is knocked back on its knees. What nobody knows is that the family teenagers are sick of their parents acting like schoolyard bullies, when nobody even remembers why the fight started! Gigi Caputo and Roman Monte, the son and daughter, are secretly in love. Determined to put a stop to their parents' vicious feud, they risk their parents' livelihood and their own lives. In this nod to Romeo and Juliet, will love win? Or vendetta?
I REALLY WANT TO APPLAUD BOTH AUTHORS FOR HAVING THE COURAGE OF WRITING A STORY BASED ON ROMEO AND JULIET. THEY BOTH GAVE THIS STORY A SPECIAL TWIST TO AN OLD SHAKESPEARE STORY, AND THEY DID AN AWESOME JOB. THE STORY IS WRITTEN IN TWO PARTS, SWITCHING BETWEEN TIME PERIODS. SOMETIMES IT WAS HARD KEEPING UP WHEN THE CHAPTERS CHANGE INTO ANOTHER TIME PERIOD BUT IT REELS YOU IN A WAY THAT YOU WON'T DARE STOP. TO BE TRUTHFUL I NEVER READ ROMEO AND JULIET AND AFTER READING THIS BOOK, IT LEFT ME WANTING TO READ THE STORY JUST TO SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CHARACTERS.
I LOVED GIGI'S (JULIET) AND ROMAN (ROMEO) ROMANCE. I LOVED BOTH CHARACTERS WHICH IS HARD TO SAY WHEN YOU READ OTHER BOOKS, I USUALLY END UP LOVING ONE OR THE OTHER.
IN THIS BOOK YOU WILL NOT ONLY READ ABOUT THE ROMANCE BETWEEN THE MAIN CHARACTERS BUT YOU WILL READ ABOUT HOW THE FEUD STARTED BETWEEN FAMILIES. SO I WILL SURELY AND GLADLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO EVERYONE, SPECIALLY IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING NEW TO READ, SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
I GIVE THIS BOOK ★★★★★
