A book to devour in summer,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When You Were Mine (Paperback)When You Were Mine walks the line between being fun summer fluff and having a more serious side. In truth, this book has been inaccurately sold as a Romeo and Juliet retelling. After Rob (Romeo) and Juliet get together they drop to the periphery of the story and When You Were Mine focuses on Rosaline's tentative new relationship with school slacker, Len. Apart from similar names and a 'feuding families' plot point, When You Were Mine is really just a high school romance, with more in common with Jennifer Echols and Stephanie Perkins than Shakespeare.
Luckily those are my favourite kind of books to devour in summer, so I wasn't disappointed. This is an easy-breezy read that I finished in a couple of sittings. It makes use of a fair few clichés and archetypes but it has a relateable main character, some funny lines, a few swoony kisses and even some moments of real depth at the end. What more do you want to bring to the beach?
