Everyone knows the story of Romeo and Juliet, the Capulets vs. the Montagues. They were from families that hated one another and would never have approved of a romance between the two of them. Romeo and Juliet fall in love and decide they are going to get married behind their family's backs, and Juliet decides to take a sleeping potion that will make her seem dead so that she can fake her death and then they could run away together. Romeo finds her and thinks she is dead, and ends up killing himself because he doesn't want to be without her. It's a tale of two star-crossed lovers. This version is much different from the original in the sense that it's alot shorter, but it's very easy to understand. The pictures alone tell the story for the reader with their intricate detail. The words are modern and cut back alot so that the reader gets the main story without all of the extras. It's a great book to help young adults understand the story and what happens in it better.
