Rose’s parents send her to live with her cousin in a small village in Yorkshire because her unsociable habits have become too much for them to handle. No matter what Rose does she doesn’t fit in and she can’t seem to stay out of trouble. When she bounces from one disaster after another she takes down friends and family like a bowling ball in the alley. Will she ever be accepted and is love so far out of reach?
This book had a manic touch about it. I was breathless and uncomfortable with every stupid antic rose got up to but it made me laugh. When I got to the halfway mark I realised that I cared about Rose and that’s when the tears began. This book and the highly emotional characters within really got to me and I advise anyone brave enough to read to grab a man-sized box of tissues and a bottle of wine to go with it.
