Suddenly, Romiette sat up in her bed. Her nightgown was damp and clinging to her body. (from the first line)
Like Shakespeare's famous star-crossed lovers, Romiette Cappelle and Julio Montague face strong opposition to their budding romance. In their case, a dangerous gang's disapproval of their interracial relationship puts the two in mortal peril.
From the Publisher:
Romiette, an African-American girl, and Julio, a Hispanic boy fall in love on the Internet and find themselves being harrassed by a gang whose members object to interracial dating.
