Synopsis Via Goodreads
Understudies never get to perform
. . . which is why being Juliet’s understudy in the school’s yearly “Evening with Shakespeare” is the perfect role for Emily. She can earn some much-needed extra credit while pursuing her main goal of spending time with Wes, aka Romeo, aka the hottest, nicest guy in school (in her completely unbiased opinion). And she meant to learn her lines, really, it’s just:
a) Shakespeare is HARD,
b) Amanda, aka the “real” Juliet, makes her run errands instead of lines, and
c) there’s no point because Amanda would never miss the chance to be the star of the show.
Then, Amanda ends up in the hospital and Emily, as the (completely unprepared!) understudy, has to star opposite the guy of her dreams. Oops?
Thank you to Netgalley and Swoon reads!
I need to say that I am not a big fan of the cover. For me it was a little blah with the girl being there. I would have liked just the doodles better. Now that that’s been said this book was so cute. It gave me serious throw back feels to movies like sleepover and show’s like boy meets world. Those types of teen romcom style things gave me so much life when I was still young.
I read this book in just a few hours. Its exactly what you think it will be from reading the blurb a fun fluff y adventure. Emily is a klutzy word vomiting character that had me giggling and peeking through my fingers during her many embarrassing moments! Wes was great his winking. All the talk about winking. SO FUNNY. All the characters were too cute. There could have been a little more development and back story with Wes. I really wanted to know more about their childhood, but still worth the read.
This is the perfect fluffy read to pick up, especially when you are in need for some laughter 4 stars!
