Sneak Peek: Fakespeare – Starcrossed in Romeo & Juliet

Today, we have the honor of kicking off the blog tour for Fakespeare by M.E. Castle, an hilarious new middle grade series in which three kids get lost inside Shakespeare’s plays and must help the characters complete their stories in order to get home.

To get this blog tour started, we have a sneak peak at one of the first two books in the series, Fakespeare: Starcrossed in Romeo & Juliet:

Here’s more about the book:

Three kids get lost inside Shakespeare’s book and must help Romeo and Juliet finish their story in order to return home in this silly middle school series!

Dear Reader,

You are reading this because you expressed interest in the Get Lost Book Club.

Are you ready to embark on a journey to Italy, where you’ll find yourself right in the middle of a major feud between two rival pizza-making families: the Montagues and the Capulets? A swordsman and perfumer will hunt you. There will be disguises, fake pizza, and tomato fights (make sure to duck!). You must help Becca, her stepbrother Sam, and her dog Rufus convince Romeo Montague to ask Juliet Capulet on a date, or you will all be stuck in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet forever!

Intrigued? Worried? Downright terrified? You should be. But if you’re ready for an adventure, step right up and follow me. It’s time to get lost.
