twisting story with love and war—and Shakespeare—in The Romeo and Juliet Code
(out this January).
Sigh. Who doesn’t know of the tragic love tale of Romeo and
Juliet? Embark on a mysterious journey with Felicity as she is shipped from
England to America. Her parents drop her off in Maine with an aunt, uncle and
grandmother she has never met. Mind you, it’s 1941 and with World War II
happening, Britain’s a dangerous place to be for a girl.
But why are letters coming to her Uncle Gideon from Portugal
in her father’s handwriting when her parents are supposed to be back in
England? What happens when she finds out about Captain Derek, the other person
living in the house? Are there answers to this strange new life anywhere?
Phoebe Stone will suck you in with her latest title. You’ll
be ready to travel back in time and help Felicity and Derek on their mission to
find out what’s going on. Be sure to pick up this puzzling new novel when it
hits the shelves this January. Then come back and let us know your thoughts.
