The Romeo and Juliet Code By: Phobe Stone
This book is really good. I love all of the mystery involved. The book was generally about WW2 and how it affects this girl named Felicity. She was originally in England, but then since there were bombs landing everywhere she had to move to America with her "Uncle". But her parents never said when they'd come back and get her (only Felicity would be staying at her "Uncle's" home). Then there is this mysterious captain in the house, which turns out to only be 12 years old! She has to crack codes and found out what her parents are doing and where they were. If u read the book, you'll understand why I put the word uncle in quotes!
An idea from the book that caught my attention was for the main character (Felicity) to have her first major crush while trying to solve the mystery of her parents. I liked how the author added that part because without her first crush the major plot line of the story wouuld dramatically change, at least that's what I think. Her having her first major crush while having to the solve the mystery was a lot of more pressure on Feilicity which makes the book a whole lot better to read becauase there is more things going on at once.
I think the book is much better with her first crush in it, than without the idea of her first major crush. I think it's more interesting to read a book with more things going on at once because I am a type of person who likes reading books with many different plot lines. In this book there are about 3 major polt line: 1. She needs to decode the letters her "uncle" is receiving from her parents. 2. She has to survive her first big crush. And last but not least 3. She also learns more and more about her family while trying to get used to the way things are in America. Also, having a little bit of romance with adventure/mystery is a great mixture. It allows the reader to be so intrigued in the book and not being able to put the book down.
