Mimi Wallingford, Great Granddaughter of Adelaide Wallingford, has the life that most girls dream about, playing Juliet opposite teen heartthrob Troy Summer on Broadway in Shakespeare's famous play. Unfortunately, she has no desire to be an actress, a fact her mother can't seem to grasp. But when she and Troy are magically thrust into Shakespeare's Verona, they experience the feud between the Capulets and Montagues first hand. Mimi realizes that she and Juliet have more in common than Shakespeare's script-they are both fighting for futures of their own choosing. Mimi feels compelled to help her and with Troy's unexpected help, hopes to give Shakespeare's most famous tragedy a happily-ever-after-ending.

A Patchwork of Books

(Yes, I know he was the Duke of Milan and not the Duke of, say, Essex, but in Shakespeare's time, one could not create fictional dukes and kings in England and get away with it - one either wrote a "history", gussied up so as to stroke the current monarch's history and beliefs, or one set their p...
