When I heard about Rival, coming soon from Entangled Teen, I had to know more. It's a YA contemporary novel with a love story that rivals Romeo and Juliet! Seriously, the last line says: Star-crossed doesn’t even begin to describe our fate. Are you swooning? Because I am. Here's a little bit more about Rival! Rival - About the Book For years, our families have had one rule: We leave them alone. They leave us alone.
