Shakespeare's classic retold from another perspective

Rosaline won't let anyone or anything get in the way of her future as a healer. That is, until she meets Benvolio. Where Romeo's words had been hollow and unfounded, Benvolio's are filled with sincerity and true love. Now Rosaline finds herself caught between her feelings, her ambition, and her family's long-standing feud with the Montagues.

When Romeo turns his affections toward Ros's cousin, Juliet, their relationship brings the feud of the two houses to a new level. Rosaline and Benvolio hatch a plan to bring peace to the two families. But will they succeed?

Reviews

Praise for Romeo's Ex

“Those familiar with the original Hamlet will most appreciate Fiedler's imaginative approach, as she pays homage to the Bard with clever cribbing and her own twist on Shakespearean language.” —Publishers Weekly on Dating Hamlet

“Fans of the Bard will applaud this highly imaginative, lyrical text that plays with the story without damaging it.” —School Library Journal on Dating Hamlet

“Even teens with a vague knowledge of the play will enjoy the quotes, references, and sly reversals as well as the Shakespearean drama and commentary.” —Booklist on Dating Hamlet
