A story of star–crossed urban love by two–time National Book Award finalist Walter Dean Myers.

Have you ever loved someone from the wrong side of the tracks? Damien has everything going for him. His family wants him to date Roxanne. He falls for Junice, whose life is totally messed up. But Junice tells him that he's the one who needs the reality check.

Sometimes the greatest obstacle to finding true love is ourselves.

Harlem meets Shakespeare in this fresh, original free–verse novel by Michael L. Printz Award winner Walter Dean Myers.
