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. '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
