Publisher's Summary

Kathryn Barker's Waking Romeo is a spectacularly genre-bending retelling of Romeo & Juliet asking the big questions about true love, fate, and time travel.

Year: 2083. Location: London. Mission: Wake Romeo.

It’s the end of the world. Literally. Time travel is possible, but only forward. And only a handful of families choose to remain in the “now", living off of the scraps left behind.

Among them are 18-year-old Juliet and the love of her life, Romeo. But things are far from rosy for Jules. Romeo lies in a coma, and Jules is estranged from her friends and family, dealing with the very real fallout of their wild romance.

Then a mysterious time traveler, Ellis, impossibly arrives from the future with a mission that makes Juliet question everything she knows about life and love.

Can Jules wake Romeo - and rewrite her future?

“The most beautiful, moving, and rigorously plotted time-travel novel I have ever read.” —Justine Larbalestier, author of My Sister Rosa 

“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, award-winning author of Pink
