This is a story about two lovers named Romeo and Juliet who wanted to get married and leave their families because the two families had a feud which continuously kept interrupting their love life. When they tried to do this, there were a lot of challenges which they both had to go through to try and fulfill their dream. Unfortunately, many people died in the process and things got out of hand. The matter was not fully resolved and there was no real happy ending. Overall, peace was restored among the two families but there were many sacrifices which had to go along with the peace which is up to you guys to decide whether or not it was a happy ending.

"Romeo and Juliet" is a book that is really affecting. While this book is all about love between Romeo and Juliet, it's also developed on hatred. This complicated love story of Romeo and Juliet is heart breaking while full of love and sweetness. For Romeo and Juliet it was love at first sight, later on to find out that their families are enemies, with the very less understanding that Juliet's family gave to her, Juliet was heart broken to find out she has been demand to marry another man. Though she had a plan to fake her death, but sweet Romeo did not know that her death was fake so Romeo suicide to be with Juliet, only for Juliet to wake up and find Romeo in her arms and dead,  for her to take her life too...
