YEAR: 2083. LOCATION: LONDON. MISSION: WAKE ROMEO. It's the end of the world. Literally. Time travel is possible, but only forwards. And only a handful of families choose to remain in the 'now', living off the scraps that were left behind. Among these are eighteen-year-old Juliet... and the love of her life, Romeo. But things are far from rosy for Jules. Romeo is in a coma and she's estranged from her friends and family, dealing with the very real fallout of their wild romance. Then a handsome time traveller, Ellis, arrives with an important mission that makes Jules question everything she knows about life and love. Can Jules wake Romeo and rewrite her future? A highly original mashup that delights as it disorients ... and asks what would have happened if two great literary love stories were somehow intertwined. 'Original, ambitious, powerful ... Barker's ability to challenge the boundaries of genre and find light in the darkness is a gift.' Melina Marchetta, author of Looking for Alibrandi and Saving Francesca 'A genre-bending masterpiece that effortlessly juggles classic literature, existentialism, time travel and dystopia - with action and feels. I freaking loved every minute.' Lili Wilkinson, author of After The Lights Go Out, Green Valentine and Pink 'The most beautiful, moving and rigorously plotted time travel novel I have ever read.' Justine Larbalestier, author of Liar, My Sister Rosa and Razorhurst 'A stunning reimagining of the classic tale of Romeo and Juliet, meets Wuthering Heights, meets epic time-travelling extravaganza ... Highly recommended.' Books+Publishing
