Here’s a little Q&A I did about my new book with Macmillan, Romeo and What’s Her Name, and a little video I made! https://www.swoonreads.com/blog/meet-author-romeo-and-whats-her-name-shani-petroff/ Can’t wait for you all to read this book!! I’m doing revisions now, and I’m almost done! Here’s what the publisher said about the book: Romeo & What’s Her Name by Shani Petroff An unprepared understudy is forced to take the stage with her secret crush in this YA romantic comedy of errors. Why we love it: – We couldn’t stop laughing at the Bridget Jones style humor of failing spectacularly and making grand gestures! – The theatre elements in this story were so fun! We love-eth the drama!
