    Waking Romeo
    <i>YEAR: 2083. </i><i>LOCATION: LONDON. </i><i>MISSION: WAKE ROMEO.</i><br/><br/>It's the end of the world. Literally. Time travel is possible, but only forwards. And only a handful of families choose to remain in the 'now', living off the scraps that were left behind. Among these are eighteen-year-old Juliet and the love of her life, Romeo. But things are far from rosy for Jules. Romeo is in a coma and she's estranged from her friends and family, dealing with the very real fallout of their wild romance. Then a handsome time traveller, Ellis, arrives with an important mission that makes Jules question everything she knows about life and love. Can Jules wake Romeo and rewrite her future?<br/><br/>A highly original mashup<i> </i>that delights as it disorients ... and asks what would have happened if two great literary love stories were somehow intertwined.<br/><br/>'Original, ambitious, powerful ... Barker's ability to challenge the boundaries of genre and find light in the darkness is a gift.' Melina Marchetta, author of <i>Looking for Alibrandi</i> and <i>Saving Francesca</i><br/><br/>'A genre-bending masterpiece that effortlessly juggles classic literature, existentialism, time travel and dystopia - with action and <i>feels</i>. I freaking loved every minute.' Lili Wilkinson, author of <i>After The Lights Go Out</i>, <i>Green Valentine</i> and <i>Pink</i><br/><br/>'The most beautiful, moving and rigorously plotted time travel novel I have ever read.' Justine Larbalestier, author of <i>Liar</i>, <i>My Sister Rosa</i> and <i>Razorhurst</i><i><br/></i><br/>'A stunning reimagining of the classic tale of <i>Romeo and Juliet</i>, meets <i>Wuthering Heights</i>, meets epic time-travelling extravaganza ... Highly recommended.' <i>Books+Publishing</i>
