YOLO Juliet
Brett Wright

This illustrated drama in text massages retells Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, placing it into a modern setting. We all know the famous story of star-crossed lovers and the drama that follows them. What if you add texting and emojis to the mix? But even with the twists and turns of social media, their love for one another will prevail. After all, you only live once, right?

The book can act as an addition to the original, or as an introduction to the world of Shakespeare and might serve as an introduction to a cross-curricular project on drama.
