Kids say (1 ):

This dramatic Romeo and Juliet-type novel by Jennifer Dugan thoughtfully explores mental health issues and complicated relationships. Told in alternating chapters from Jubilee's and Ridley's points of view, Dugan accurately portrays co-dependency, anxiety, and depression. Her characters are sweet, but some readers might be frustrated that Jubilee continually prioritizes her whirlwind romance with Ridley over her family, her friends, and her future. As Verona Comics progresses and their relationship takes a dramatic turn, teens will see how essential compassion, honest communication, and respect are in developing healthy relationships.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
