Booklist Reviews 2016 May #2

Rodney, an African American teen just returned from juvenile detention, wants no part of the food fight-turned-riot that breaks out in the high-school cafeteria. The fight is between African American and Somali students, and instead of getting involved, he chooses to protect a Somali girl from harm, even though he still gets beaten up. Her name is Jawahir, and Rodney is in love. Thus begins Jones' high/low take on Romeo and Juliet, complete with the tragic ending, although the other deaths that occur in Shakespeare's play are depicted here as serious injuries. The title is part of the Unbarred series, with each title based on a Shakespeare play and set in modern times. The present-tense, plot-driven narrative is compelling, although some of the elements seem forced to fit. Characterization, while evident, does take a back seat, but there is enough to make at least the main characters stand out. While it is written with the high/low reader in mind, this will likely have appeal for readers at any reading level. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2016 Fall

Shakespeare's tragedies--Antony and Cleopatra (Duty), Hamlet (Fight), Othello (Friend), Romeo and Juliet (Heart)--are adapted to modern settings. Gangs, racial conflicts, drug trafficking, and correctional institutions feature strongly in these unsubtle attempts to make Shakespeare relevant to readers unfamiliar with aristocratic politics or the Roman Empire. Short chapters, fast action, and lots of dialogue increase the hi-lo appeal. [Review covers the following Unbarred titles: Duty or Desire, Fight or Flee, Friend or Foe, and Heart or Mind.] Copyright 2016 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

PW Reviews 2016 February #3

Rodney falls for a Somali classmate, Jawahir, while protecting her during a riot between Somali and African-American students at their Minneapolis high school. Their tragic love affair echoes that of Romeo and Juliet in one of four titles kicking off the Unbarred series of modern-day Shakespeare adaptations, written at a fourth-grade reading level and featuring kids who have served time in juvenile detention systems. Jones effectively characterizes real-life tensions to ratchet up the drama and danger as battle lines between ethnic and religious groups are drawn, and hate and violence seethe. Available simultaneously: Duty or Desire, Fight or Flee, and Friend or Foe. Ages 11–up. (Mar.)
