    From the moment I picked this book up and started to read, I was

    From the moment I picked this book up and started to read, I was fascinated and entirely sucked in. I admire Rosaline's strength and independence and I absolutely love Benvolio! The dialogue is incredible. I feel like I'm actually reading a play that Shakespeare wrote because of Taub's ability to write in Shakespearean English. The mystery throughout the whole story had me thinking about who the antagonist might be over and over. What I really love is the idea to go beyond what happened in "Romeo and Juliet". It's hard to find a good book with the influence of Shakespeare, and I'm hoping that Taub puts out more books like this. To wrap it up in just a sentence, I would say: If you are looking for a book set in the Renaissance, look no further than "Still Star-Crossed",  because the drama is wonderful and the romance is so sweet that I feel Romeo and Juliet may just be pushed aside.

    This book is absolutely incredible. The characters are wonderful

    This book is absolutely incredible. The characters are wonderful, vivid, and infuriating. I felt as though I was walking in the dark, bloodied streets at night beside Benvolio. At various points throughout, "Still Star-Crossed" made me want to punch a wall in frustration and applaud Rosaline's words, punch one of the characters in the face and laugh at Livia's scorching wit. This is an immediate top ten favorite for me. I just finished it, and I already want to read it again. Melinda Taub's Rosaline is one of my favorite characters of all time (She may be second only to Loki and Elphaba). I desperately hope that Melinda Taub writes more books like this, with glorious characters borrowed from Shakespeare. I would buy it without even reading the back.
