Waiting on Wednesday (3): When You Were Mine, by Rebecca Serle

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights highly-anticipated upcoming releases.

    Publisher: Simon Pulse

    Release Date: May 1, 2012

    Genre: Young Adult – Contemporary / Romance

    Type: Stand-Alone

Rosaline knows that she and Rob are destined to be together. Rose has been waiting for years for Rob to kiss her – and when he finally does, it’s perfect. But then Juliet moves back to town. Juliet, who used to be Rose’s best friend. Juliet, who now inexplicably hates her. Juliet, who is gorgeous, vindictive, and a little bit crazy… and who has set her sights on Rob. He doesn’t even stand a chance. 
Rose is devestated over losing Rob to Juliet. This is not how the story was supposed to go. And when rumors start swirling about Juliet’s instability, her neediness, and her threats of suicide, Rose starts to fear not only for Rob’s heart, but also for his life. Because Shakespeare may have gotten the story wrong, but we all still know how it ends.  (Taken from Goodreads)

Okay, so the last line got me. I’ve always been interested in the whole fate vs. freewill theme in stories, and this one just sounds so intriguing. I’d love to see Serle’s take on this infamous, ill-fated story – especially in Rosaline’s perspective!
