Star-crossed love. Betrayal. Death. Comedy?

Peter Saltz ("Saltz" to his friends) and Anabell Stackpoole like each other, but they're too shy to do anything about it. Thank goodness for Saltz's best friend, Ed Sitrow, who masterminds an eighth-grade production of Romeo & Juliet-starring none other than Saltz and Stackpoole as Romeo and Juliet. But getting the two reluctant lovebirds together is a bigger task than anyone anticipated, even with Shakespeare's help. What ensues is the most hilarious, disastrous, and unprecedented rendition of Romeo & Juliet in history!

Avi's work spans nearly every genre and has received nearly every major prize, including the Newbery Medal for Crispin: The Cross of Lead and Newbery Honors for Nothing But the Truth and The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle. Avi lives in Denver, Colorado. You can visit him online at
