Still Star-Crossed

By: Melinda Taub

BOOK TALK

After the tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet, the Capulets and Montagues continue their senseless feud.  Prince Escalus decides to take matters into his own hands and arranges a marriage between Benvolio of the House of Montague and Rosaline from the House of Capulet.  However, Benvolio and Rosaline are not the least bit interested in marriage, so they put a plan in place to end the strife in the city without them having to be married.  The ensuing days and weeks brings forth secret meetings, treachery, death, romance, duels, and eventually true love.
