Why I liked this title:

I picked up this book to read because the title intrigued me. Juliet is a shy girl who doesn't like to speak in public or be the center of attention. After a hard day at school, Juliet finds herself in a magic shop that she has never seen before. At the shop, she is given a beautiful necklace. Little does Juliet know that the necklace contains the power to make any boy who meets Juliet fall in love with her. Soon boys are following her around, bringing her flowers, and fighting over her. What is a girl to do? Juliet soon discovers that the magical powers of the necklace date back to the Greek gods and goddesses. To free herself from the necklace, Juliet must first make peace with the gods.
