Annotation:
This dramatic spin on Shakespeare's play, ROMEO AND JULIET, moves the action to modern-day Cincinnati. Romiette Cappelle and Julio Montague correspond with each other through cyber-chats, and plan to meet one another when they realize they have a lot in common--what they don't realize is that they attend the same high school! The pair begins to fall in love, and their relationship is wonderful. But things could change when a group of thugs don't want them to date because Romiette is African-American and Julio is Hispanic. Will the two end their relationship, or overcome the prejudice that threatens to destroy them? By the author of TEARS OF A TIGER.
