Instant New York Times Bestseller

Romeo loves Juliet. Or Rosaline. And Juliet loves Romeo. Or Viola. Or Orlando. It's Shakespeare as you've never played him before.

In this choose-your-own-path version of Romeo and Juliet , you choose where the story goes every time you read! What if Romeo never met Juliet? What if Juliet got really buff instead of moping around the castle all day? What if they teamed up to take over Verona with robot suits? Whatever your adventure, you're guaranteed to find lots of romance, lots of epic fight scenes, and plenty of questionable decision-making by very emotional teens.

All of the endings--there are over a hundred--feature beautiful illustrations by some of the greatest artists working today, including New York Times bestsellers Kate Beaton, Noelle Stevenson, Randall Munroe, and Jon Klassen.

Packed with exciting choices, fun puzzles, secret surprises, terrible puns, and more than a billion possible storylines, Romeo and/or Juliet offers a new experience every time you read it. You can choose to play as Romeo or Juliet (obviously) but you can also play as both of them, or as Juliet's nurse, or, if you're good, you can even unlock a fourth playable character! That's right. We figured out how to have unlockable characters in books. Choose well, and you may even get to write the world's most awkward choose-your-own sex scene.

The perfect way to read Romeo and Juliet with you choosing what should happen. Funny tale that will have you laughing out loud.

My inner child came alive when I picked up this comical choose-your-own-adventure version of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. North truly puts the reader in the driver's seat and allows them to navigate through the wild and whirling adventures of Romeo and Juliet. Filled with witty sarcasm, hyperbolic notions, and hilarious art work, this novel will leave you laughing out loud.

Glorious fun! And such a cool concept that harkens back to childhood days of adventure and laughter. Definitely not the Bard you grew up with or learned about in school. Penned by the genius who writes the Adventure Time comics, the voice is authentic and real; almost like having North as your own personal dungeon master!

This is NOT the Bard as you learned in school! 'Tis much more fun. The "chooseable-path" format (no trademarks were infringed in the making of this book) offers endless reading opportunities, but do not feel completely constrained by the rules of said format. The book works well as intended, but by flipping through and picking up plots as you will, the stories and art truly shine.
