Annotation This story based on Shakespeare's play, ROMEO AND JULIET, tells the story of Julio Montague and Romiette Capelle. The two 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 two begin 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?
First Line Suddenly, Romiette sat up in her bed. Her nightgown was damp and clinging to her body.
Editors Note This update of the Shakespeare story features two perfectly matched young lovers who meet in an Internet chat room, but when a local gang disapproves of their interracial relationship, tormenting them, the strength of their love is tested.
