'You did WHAT?' screamed Mari.

'You turned down the cutest boy ever? Are you crazy?'

This summer, Fliss is playing Juliet opposite her dream Romeo. If only she could tell him how she feels!

But unless she finds some inner confidence, she's going to miss her chance with him.

Because someone else has her eyes on Fliss's role - and her leading man...

Could he be her real-life Romeo...?

I really like the cover of this book - especially the heart shaped dressing room mirror.  I also like the small hearts on the cover; it shows this is a dramatic and romantic book with a touch of comedy.

Personally, I love books that are to do with drama. Whether it's set in a drama school, a drama club or whether it's about an actress or's guarenteed that I'll love it. So obviously this is going to be a positive review for it!

My favourite character is Fliss. She's funny, kind and she sounds like a great actress. It's easy to imagine her and the other characters too, which is great. :)

So. My rating for this? 5/5! It's a very good book. One of my friends, who always used to say 'Books are boring.' or 'I hate reading!' is now a definite bookworm thanks to this book! I'd recommend it for readers aged 9+. Awesome book!
