In this fast-paced romance that combines flirty fun and situational comedy, a spunky heroine must navigate secret crushes, high school hijinks, and, of course, Shakespeare.
Understudies never get to perform...which is why being Juliet's understudy in the school's yearly Shakespeare production is the perfect role for Emily. She can earn some much-needed extra credit while pursuing her main goal of spending time with Wes, aka Romeo, aka the hottest, nicest guy in school (in her completely unbiased opinion). And she meant to learn her lines, really, it's just:
a) Shakespeare is HARD,
b) Amanda (the "real" Juliet) makes her run errands instead of lines, and
c) there's no point, since Amanda would never miss her chance to be the star of the show.
Then Amanda ends up in the hospital, and Emily, as the (completely unprepared!) understudy, has to star in the most famous scene from Romeo and Juliet opposite the guy of her dreams. Oops?
Shani Petroff's Romeo and What's Her Name is a laugh-out-loud funny novel chosen by listeners like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads.

Such good comedy and romance
This narrator is AMAZING! This is is one of those books that's even better in audiobook format because of the excellent performance.
So cute and funny at the same time!
Shani is a new author and narrator for me. This is a first I heard fiction being narrated by it's own author! This story brings me back to high school. We've all been there crushing on someone and have your friends concoct ways to get his attention and win him over. The exception is Emily really went the extra mile in her attempts to win Wes over. I really enjoyed the storyline and the narrations.
Light Story About Being Yourself
I really love how Shani Petroff finds a unique voice for her characters .. the story itself is pretty basic and barely any drama happens but it was a fun ride
it's all about Emily who's been crushing on Wes and her attempts to get his attention .. her friends Jill and Kala are goals and I just love those two
it was a nice light read and I enjoyed it
Shani Petroff's narration is always on point and I love how she narrates her own books .. it was a nice cute read overall
