About Juliet

Capulet’s daughter. She is presented as a young and innocent adolescent, not yet 14 years old. Her youthfulness is stressed throughout the play to illustrate her progression from adolescence to maturity and to emphasize her position as a tragic heroine. Juliet’s love for Romeo gives her the strength and courage to defy her parents and face death twice. 

About the writer

My name is Bea Harmston. I am 16 years old and I live in West Sussex. I love writing and even before I could read I used to grab a huge pile of books from our shelves and thumb through them, creating my own stories while I stared at the words. My biggest inspiration is Gayle Forman and one day I’d like to publish my own novels and have a voice as a writer.
