Do you know the love story of “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare? Well, “Ronit and Jamil” is a love story by Pamela L. Lastin about two teenagers in different areas in a war.

Ronit is an Israeli girl and Jamil is a Palestinian boy. Once their fathers have business together, Ronit and Jamil fall desperately in love. There is a barrier between them but, that doesn’t stop them.

They usually visit in the market and they text. They both use poems throughout the book to express their feelings for each other.

But a love affair that big can’t be a secret for too long. Soon their parents find out.

They keep Ronit and Jamil away from each other. What will happen next? Will they ever see each other again?

“Ronit and Jamil” is a very interesting book. I think that the book has too much poetry and flowery language. But if you like poetry, this book is just right for you!

I recommend this book for ages 9 and up.

    Awesome review! I don’t think it’s a book for me but you reviewed it really well. I don’t really like poetry but it seems like a great book. I hope Ronit and Jamil stay together. 🙂

    Nice review Asha. I don’t think I would like this book Because I want to read a story, not poetry. Besides the poetry, it sounds like a good book. I’m just not interested. Great review.

    This an amazing review. I hope Ronit and Jamil stay together. They seem very in love. I don’t want their parents to separate them. Again, amazing review Asha.
