Rosemary and Juliet by Judy MacLeanOne reviewer gives two stars because this book is not a sociologically cutting-edge, realistic study of conservative Christian versus secular liberal sexual ethics--which, given the overt Shakesperean template, is like complaining that Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet did not realistically address the actual social issues fueling Renaissance Veronas upper-class family conflicts. Rosemary and Juliet is a FICTIONAL story about teenaged star-crossed lovers! Its properly centered on the young women who have fallen in love despite their divergent family backgrounds, and that relationship is handled with delicacy and a breathtaking sensual grace. Its the authors privilege to characterize the more intrusive conservative Christian characters as hypocritical and nasty. In this country, there is quite a bit of nasty, hypocritical Christian public rhetoric. No doubt there are YA hetero Christian love stories out there where the secular liberals are the baddies. I wonder, though, whether they make as sweet an argument for the transcendent rightness of love.
