These violent delights have violent ends...

Gigi Caputo is fed up. A vicious act of vandalism has dealt another blow to her family's proud pizza heritage, and the Montes--owners of a rival Italian restaurant--are clearly to blame. The hostility goes far beyond bragging rights for best pizza in Chicago. The Montes have been bent on destroying Cap's for four generations. Even if it means putting herself in harm's way, Gigi's determined to get to the bottom of the feud. Instead, in a secret encounter with Roman Monte, the very boy whose relatives have brought her family such grief, she finds both danger and love at first sight. If the daughter and son of these two warring families fall for each other, can it be anything but a recipe for disaster? Slowly, Gigi and Roman learn that their story is fatefully linked to the summer of 1933, when two twelve-year-olds, Benny and Nick, hop the turnstile at the Chicago World's Fair. The most stunning wonder of the fair is Stella, who innocently causes a lasting rift between the two boyhood. Wending its way through past and present day, this modern take on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is bittersweet, funny, and intensely exciting. It's classic romance--a tale of hate and the only force that can ever defeat it: love.

Review:

"The tragic rift...comes to life with...a much more satisfying...resolution than the Bard's original tragic tale. Certain moments...are...heartbreakingly lovely. This story will resonate with teens as well as adults." --USA Today Happy Ever After

"A funny, fresh, and wholly original take on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet...pure perfection!" --Yona Zeldis McDonough, author of Two of a Kind and A Wedding in Great Neck

"With all the intrigue, drama, and tragedy of the real thing, Askew and Helmes make you fall as hard for Roman and Gigi as you did for Romeo and Juliet." --Kerry Cohen, author of Easy and It's Not You, It's Me

"I did really enjoy this book. I laughed, I cried, I had a nice time with it.... I've recommended the series before, this book just re-enforces that recommendation." --Ariel Avalon

"I have to say that the Twisted Lit ladies were really on their game with this one. There were so many moments that I recognized as inspired by the play, but which fit so perfectly into the new story that they created." --Drown My Books

"These two authors focus on the messages and warnings written within the classic plays and then present them in ways that teenagers...will want to devour.... The humour is palpable and the genius of the storylines is proven with every page." - Confessions of a Book Addict

"Anyone But You is a great young adult read and may be a helpful resource for students studying Romeo and Juliet." --Vancouver Family Magazine
