You Against Me, by Jenny Downham

Hello Friends,

I just finished You Against Me, by Jenny Downham.  I would highly recommend this for everyone, but it will hold a special place in the hearts and minds of reluctant readers.  It centers around Ellie and Mikey, star crossed lovers, caught in the middle of some heavy-duty family chaos. Despite their differences, despite the tragic events that occur, can they make it work? Will they make it work? And at what cost?

Jenny Downham writes in a way that will keep every reluctant reader engaged.  She takes the classic story of Romeo and Juliet, and brings it to a time period that young readers will relate to.
