Do you feel the soul of another calling to you? Do you know in your heart that your destiny and his wore meant to merge In the cosmos? We can help you find him. If nothing else, maybe Romi will get some insight into that recurring dream she's been having about fire and water.

But they never expect that the scented candle and tube of dream ointment will live up to their promises and merge Romiette's destiny with that of Julio Montague, a boy she's just met in the "cosmos" of an Internet chat room. It turns out they go to the same high school, not to mention having almost the same names as Shakespeare's famous lovers!
Sweet-scented dreams of Julio have almost overtaken Romi's nightmares It seems the Devildogs, a local gang, violently oppose the relationship of Romiette and Julio. Soon they find themselves haunted by the purple-clad shadows of the gang, and the fire and water of Romiette's dream merge in ways more terrifying -- and ultimately more affirming -- than even Destiny could have foreseen. Sharon M. Edwards Award honoring her significant and lasting contribution to writing for teens.
But like the Shakespearean characters whose names echo theirs, Romiette and Julio discover that not everyone approves of their budding romance. In their case, it is because Romiette is African-American and Julio is Hispanic, and the Devildogs, a dangerous local gang, violently oppose their interracial relationship.
When the Devildogs threaten to teach them a lesson, Romiette and Julio come up with a risky plan to escape from the gang's fearsome shadow. But things go terribly awry, and the two find themselves caught up in a deadly reality more frightening that Romiette's nightmare — and in a desperate struggle to avoid the tragic fate of Shakespeare's famous young lovers.
Ironically, Julio's family relocated to escape gangs in his old high school in Texas only to find Cincinnati has them also. The two meet on the Internet and go off to a private chat room before they realize they are students at the same school.
With names like these you feel they must have an ill-fated ending.
In keeping with the Shakespearean tale, they are destined to be together while peers and family try to persuade them to part.
The Devildogs, the notorious gang that rules the high school, are incensed by Romiette and Julio's relationship and harass them to the point that it becomes quite dangerous for the two. The story is a bit predictable but still enjoyable.
