by Louise Rozett
Release Date: 01/25/15
Summary from Goodreads:
For Rose Zarelli, freshman year was about controlling her rage. Sophomore year was about finding her voice. With all that behind her, junior year should be a breeze, right? Nope. When a horrific video surfaces, Rose needs the one person she wants to be done with, the person who has broken her heart twice—Jamie Forta. But as the intensity between them heats up, Rose realizes she isn’t the only one who needs help. The thing is, Jamie doesn’t see it that way—and that could cost them both everything.
ROSE ZARELLI is done confessing because confessions are for people who have done something wrong. And I haven't done anything wrong. Here, I'll prove it to you.
1) After my mother got that call, I “borrowed” her car. (Because you can’t steal your mother’s car, can you?) I don’t really remember driving downtown, but I do remember...
2) …getting past the bouncer at Dizzy’s (I mean, it’s his job to spot a fake ID, so that’s on him)…
3) …and then later, telling my mother the truth about the bar but lying about how I got in. (A truth totally cancels out a lie, right?)
After all, what’s a little duplicity when finding Jamie Forta is the only thing that’s going to keep you from losing what’s left of your mind?
See? Junior year is off to a great start.
Rose receives news about the death of her father and the first person she wants to talk to about is Jamie. The problem is they aren't exactly on speaking terms at the moment after the events of last year that ended with Jamie walking away and completely shutting Rose out his life. She still cares for him and she knows that what she has to share will draw him in. They have an interesting yet dysfunctional relationship and I can completely understand it. Rose sees the good in Jamie, she believes in him so much that she suffocates him in a way. Jamie doesn't see the life she envisions for him because he thinks he's not worth it. And it only leads to a downward spiral that will hurt and change them both. Overall, I enjoyed the journey that the characters take in this story. This a good quick read about love, loss and friendship that I think teens would enjoy.
