Kathryn Barker's Waking Romeo is a spectacularly genre-bending retelling of Romeo & Juliet asking the big questions about true love, fate, and time travel

Year: 2083. Location: London. Mission: Wake Romeo.

It’s the end of the world. Literally. Time travel is possible, but only forward. And only a handful of families choose to remain in the “now,” living off of the scraps left behind.

Among them are eighteen-year-old Juliet and the love of her life, Romeo. But things are far from rosy for Jules. Romeo lies in a coma and Jules is estranged from her friends and family, dealing with the very real fallout of their wild romance.

Then a mysterious time traveler, Ellis, impossibly arrives from the future with a mission that makes Juliet question everything she knows about life and love.

Can Jules wake Romeo—and rewrite her future?

Kathryn Barker lives in Sydney, Australia, with her family. She has spent a lifetime exploring the magic of the universe through storytelling. Her first novel, In the Skin of a Monster, was published to high acclaim in Australia, winning the Aurealis Award for Best Young Adult Novel. Waking Romeo is Kathryn’s second novel, and the first to be published in the US.
