Book Review: The Juliet Club by Suzanne Harper

The Juliet Club was...Amazing. I read it very quickly because it pulled me in and I couldn't put it down. It follows the story of Kate, a high schooler, as she heads to Italy for a month after winning a essay contest on Romeo and Juliet. Her best friends think she will fall madly in love and have a romantic adventure in Italy, but practical Kate is convinced that love is a waste of time. So she heads off to Verona, Italy with only studying Romeo and Juliet on her mind. She spends the month with other American high school students: Lucy, a bubbly girl from Mississippi, and Tom, who didn't really write an essay. Along with three Italian high schoolers: Silvia, a moody girl who thinks she knows everything, Benno, a happy guy who wants a bit more out of life, and Giacomo, a flirty, self-assured Romeo and Juliet expert. But, of course, Kate's plans end up way off course.
I really enjoyed this book because it was a cute, fun, and clean! love story. I loved each character and their unique personalities that added so much to the story. I now have a slightly different opinion of Romeo and Juliet. I highly recommend The Juliet Club, especially to high school girls, or anyone who loves some good YA fiction.
