The author has put herself in the shoes of the adolescent mind. If you were a teenie bopper who had a friend acting all nuts all of a sudden and it was correlated with a new hottie in school, you'd probably think some drama was going on between the two of then as well.

The plot of the book develops around two star crossed lovers, as the name suggests. The two characters love each other but a curse related to Greek mythology prevents them from being together. Their relationship is further complicated when they are fed lies which also forces them apart. These two characters try to stay close, and fight their feelings for each other because of the curse and the lies they were told. In the second book, a love triangle develops. This book is not necessarily a romance novel as their are other aspects to the storyline, but the romance between the two main characters is a main element. (less)
