“Romeo and Juliet” is a play about two “star-crossed lovers” and how they make hasty decisions to try and make their relationship work.

Juliet is a young girl who has almost never seen or explored the world.

Sonny’s Blues This story is about regret and heartache between to brothers. This story is meant to tell the story of a younger brother and his struggles with life and how decisions he made affected those around him. The problem I found with the story is that it never really explained exactly what took place in his life to drive him to where he was in his adult life.

The turning point of the story was when Sonny finally opened up to what his life was like. This happened when Sonny came back and was living with him for a little while.
