Black Swan meets Romeo and Juliet in this eerie, romantic YA by New York Times bestselling author Jacqueline West

“Engrossing . . . A dizzying new twist on one of the Bard’s most famous plays.”–Kirkus

After a skiing accident that fractures her skull, Jaye is left with a splitting headache and strong delusions. Jaye must keep these delusions secret from her family, doctors, and everyone at school in order to keep her starring part in the school production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream — even though visions of Shakespeare and his characters have been following her around since the hospital.
But her attempts to resume her normal life are thwarted even further when flesh-and-blood Romeo shows up in her anatomy class. Her infatuation gives way to more hallucinations, and increasingly dangerous secret acts. Will she figure out what’s real and what’s pretend before it’s too late?
