Our latest YA Staff pick is Romeo and/or Juliet by Ryan North!

You get to decide if there should be romance, epic fight scenes... or robot suits! Packed with exciting choices, fun puzzles, secret surprises, terrible puns, and more than a billion possible storylines, you'll discover a new experience every time you read it!
