||Mattie is a good student and English
is her favorite class. This year the 8th grade play
will be Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Mattie is so
happy. She loves Shakespeare. She gets the
part of Paris and is happy that it is not a major
part. Gemma gets the part of Juliet. And she
is great in the role. But the boy who plays Romeo
doesn't really get the play. Mattie works with him
to help him understand but he just doesn't When he
is forced to drop out, Mr. Torres asks Mattie to play
Romeo since she knows all the lines and really understands
the part. She is a bit hesitant since she will have
to play opposite of Gemma. And she is finding
herself trying to figure out the feelings she has towards
Gemma. And Gemma seems to have those same feelings
for Mattie. What is going on?
