Romeo and Juliet by Andrew Matthews

A long time ago something happened between the two leading families of Verona that led their members to kill each other whenever they met. That went on for many years, and eventually no-one could remember what had caused the feud. The killing stopped in time but fights continued to break out for no reason at all. Every child born into the Montague and Capulet families grew up with the feud: they were taught to hate the members of the other family. Marriage between the young men and women of the two families was out of the question; they did no business with each other, and they never mixed.

From the traditional Arab tale of Layla and Majnoon to modern classics such as Noughts and Crosses, we can't seem to get enough of stories of lovers taking on the world and making sacrifices to be together. But many of the best stories in this genre have more to offer than a simple tale of unrequited love. Often, they explore other themes, too, such as family, race, class and culture. So, while I am not a great reader of love stories, I enjoyed finding parallels between the books on this list and the many themes explored in Romeo and Juliet. And I deliberately left out stories that involved vampires or werewolves.
