From the Publisher:
Mimi Wallingford, Great Granddaughter of Adelaide Wallingford, has the life that most girls dream about, playing Juliet opposite teen heartthrob Troy Summer on Broadway in Shakespeare’s famous play. Unfortunately, she has no desire to be an actress, a fact her mother can’t seem to grasp. But when she and Troy are magically thrust into Shakespeare’s Verona, they experience the feud between the Capulets and Montagues first hand. Mimi realizes that she and Juliet have more in common than Shakespeare’s script—they are both fighting for futures of their own choosing. Mimi feels compelled to help her and with Troy’s unexpected help, hopes to give Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy a happily-ever-after-ending.
Reluctant heir to an acting dynasty, 17-year-old Mimi Wallingford finds herself with the chance to change the fate of Romeo and Juliet when she is magicked into Shakespeare's play. Starring on Broadway with annoying teen heart throb Troy Summer is Mimi's idea of hell. Against her quintessential stage-mother's wishes, Mimi longs to go to college and become a doctor. But when she wanders into the play, Mimi discovers that she has a lot more in common with Juliet than she thought. Filled with romance, silly adventures, and coming-of-age tropes.
