When You Were Mine

Title: When you were mine
Author: Rebecca Serle
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars


"What if the greatest love story ever told was the wrong one?"
 "When you were mine" is a retelling of Romeo & Juliet told by Romeos first love Rosaline. It is set in the 21st century Rosaline is excited to start the new year as a senior she is sure that this year is going to be her year, and to make things better her childhood best friend and secret crush finally notices her. Just when Rosaline thinks everything is going perfect her cousin Juliet moves back into town, and to spite Rosaline she sets her eyes on Rob, and like always Juliet gets her way. Rosaline is devastated losing Rob specially when she starts hearing rumors about how unstable and needy Juliet is. Rosaline starts to worry for Rob and his safety after all we know how this story ends.


I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. I have mixed feelings about this book I liked it but didn't love it. I like that finally we  get to know more about the mysterious girl that Romeo left for Juliet, and we get to see if she had a happy ending or not. I wish she would have given a different ending to Rome & Juliet but we all know how that story goes. In overall this book is a fun read and has a very good plot and keeps you turning pages if you are into crazy love triangles, drama, and tear jerkers you should definitely pick this book up.
