In this fast-paced romance that combines flirty fun and situational comedy, a spunky heroine must navigate secret crushes, high school hijinks, and of course, Shakespeare.

Understudies never get to perform...which is why being Juliet's understudy in the school's yearly Shakespeare production 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 (the "real" Juliet) makes her run errands instead of lines, and
c) there's no point, since Amanda would never miss her 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 in the most famous scene from Romeo and Juliet opposite the guy of her dreams. Oops?

Shani Petroff's Romeo and What's Her Name is a laugh-out-loud funny novel chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads.

Praise for Romeo and What's Her Name:

"This has all the hallmarks of a high-school romance: a swoon-worthy male lead, a requisite mean girl, and plenty of backstage dallying and wacky miscommunication. Spunky Emily has great friends beside her, and it's this, even more than her budding romance with Wes, that makes this a worthwhile read. Flirty and fun." -Booklist

"Petroff's latest offering, published by Macmillan's crowdsourced imprint, will delight romance lovers with its fast pace and humorous tone. This sweet, lighthearted look at high school romantic foibles will be of particular interest to fans of books by Ann Brashares and Jennifer Echols." -School Library Journal

"[Emily is] the American Bridget Jones...this book is simply amazing!" -Jenn, reader on SwoonReads.com

"The characters, the pacing, the plot are all on point! Absolutely hilarious book!" -Sara, reader on SwoonReads.com

"An amazing set up, authentic characters (who are definitely swoon worthy), and a dynamic storyline. What more could you want?" -Rain, reader on SwoonReads.com
