If Romeo and Juliet got the Hamilton treatment...who would play the leads? This vividly funny, honest, and charming romantic novel by Dana L. Davis is the story of a girl who thinks she has what it takes...and the world thinks so, too.
Jerzie Jhames will do anything to land the lead role in Broadway’s hottest new show, Roman and Jewel, a Romeo and Juliet-inspired hip-hopera featuring a diverse cast and modern twists on the play. But her hopes are crushed when she learns mega-star Cinny won the lead...and Jerzie is her understudy.
Falling for male lead Zeppelin Reid is a terrible idea - especially once Jerzie learns Cinny wants him for herself. Star-crossed love always ends badly. But when a video of Jerzie and Zepp practicing goes viral and the entire world weighs in on who should play Jewel, Jerzie learns that while the price of fame is high, friendship, family, and love are priceless.

Omg how freaking sweet this story was I absolutely adored it. I love re-tellings with a sidekick every character was enjoyable to read. The Audio was great for the Voices of Jerzie and Zeppelin. But I don’t like how the narrator voiced the other characters she made most of them mainly Cindy sound like Sheneneh from Martin “oh my goodness ok.”
Overall this was fantastic five stars the smile I have on my face from just finishing this will last a longtime.

Love this book!
“Roman and Jewel” is the story of Hiphoprah retelling of “Romeo and Juliet”. Told threw the eyes of Jerzie James a 16 going on 17 star in the making. This story had ups and downs, divides and reunions and thankfully no young lovers suicides (sorry for the spoiler). Unlike the original book Jerzie really listens and takes Aunt Carla's advice to heart. I read a critic compare this to SMASH and yes they are both about getting a musical onto Broadway with a star backing the show. But this book delves deeper(books get to do that) into the love and passion that a lot of people have for the music that makes Broadway what it is.
