A wonderful tale of romeo and juliet, with true interesting facts. as well as a wonderful love story (both of them) and a great feeling of Italy. without sounding like a complete love girl i read this book a few times and still love it. it ain't perfect which is why only 4 stars, there are things that get on my nerves and a few cliche things, and yet, beautiful. in a way i wish i could give it the review it desereves, the problem is that the books you love are the most difficult to review.
