I picked this book up years ago, excited to read it, because I love the work of the romantic poets and have studied a bit about their personal lives as well. Reimagining them as modern day high school students was interesting and super clever. However, the storytelling fell a little short for me with all the bouncing back and forth.
I really like the characters. Byron is perfectly wild and brilliant. Keats is lovable and relatable and just wants to write his poetry blog. And Shelly (a combination of Percy & Mary) is vulnerable and just about as pixie dreamgirl-esque as one could hope for.
Still, I didn't feel the emotional pull I had hoped to feel while reading. I thought it was good and am glad I read it, though.
