Summary, etc.:
"Kathryn Barker's Waking Romeo is a spectacularly genre-bending retelling of Romeo & Juliet asking the big questions about true love, fate, and time travel. Year: 2083. Location: London. Mission: Wake Romeo. It's the end of the world. Literally. Time travel is possible, but only forward. And only a handful of families choose to remain in the ٢now,٣ living off of the scraps left behind. Among them are eighteen-year-old Juliet and the love of her life, Romeo. But things are far from rosy for Jules. Romeo lies in a coma and Jules is estranged from her friends and family, dealing with the very real fallout of their wild romance. Then a mysterious time traveler, Ellis, impossibly arrives from the future with a mission that makes Juliet question everything she knows about life and love. Can Jules wake Romeo-and rewrite her future?"
