Twelve year old Cooper Vega is the new kid again. His military family has just made its fifth move on the last three years. So, here he is trying to fit in at Stratford Middle School. His parents feel bad that he had to leave his friends yet again so they bought him and his older sister, Veronica, the brand new GS-4000 top of the line phone.
Coop's phone has a feature he never expected- a 16th C. ghost named Roddy who claims to have written a play called Romeo and Juliet. Ever heard of it?
With the fair lady Juliet, a 7th grader named Jolie, capturing his heart, Cooper and Roddy are going to try to give Roddy the recognition he has deserved 400 years ago.
