Andromeda Snow wakes up from a two-year coma to find that her fiancé is marrying her sister, she's paralyzed from the neck down, and she's got superpowers.
The world has changed while she was sleeping, and she finds herself assigned to a super team, fighting supervillains and picking up the pieces of her life. Oh, and one of her new teammates is a world famous tennis player/actor who's been named sexiest man alive at least three times, and he wants to be her date to her sister's wedding.
Overall, it's a lot. But Andromeda's a superhero now, and that's pretty cool.
If she's a little lonely, well, that hardly matters.
Romeo writes poems, collects fancy pens, makes wine, and is, according to everyone who cares about him, a romantic disaster. He does his best to ignore their knowing looks and disregard their entirely-too-practical advice.
Juliet hates the upstart, uncivilized Montagues because they're her family's enemies. Romeo does his best not to think about the wretched and pompous Capulets because he doesn't need that kind of negativity in his life.
But then one morning they wake up in each other's bodies, and everything changes.
This is how the world ends.
This is how the world ends.
Not in a bang, but in a book.
