What other readers are saying about this title:
Erin said:
What if whites were at the bottom of the status ladder, and blacks were at the top? What if the world they lived in was like the south in the 1950's, only reversed? A Romeo and Juliet type story is set in this world. Callum is a naught-worth nothing-and Sephy is a cross, whose father just happens to be an important government official. And they are in love. I have read Romeo and Juliet and also West Side Story, but the characters here seemed much more real.
