The only thing Rose has on her mind is a long road trip - with her mom? She is all geared up and ready for the drive, when her mother climbs into the car, obviously wanting to go along. Rose doesn't want anything else but to get away form her messed up life. Her mom, her weird, overly emotional sisters, and her parent's divorce; so when her mother asks to go along for the ride, Rose is utterly confused. But after seeing her mother staring intently at her, she just couldn't say no. So they embark on a long, emotional, and very frustrating journey filled with love, lies, secrets, hate, death, romance, and recovery. This is gonna be one heck of a ride, so buckle up and get ready for the most controversial time of your life!

I enjoyed just about everything to do with the book, Rose By Any Other Name. I loved how the author wrote little pieces throughout the story beginning with, Don'tcha just hate... They were very intriguing and full of emotion. They stole my attention and just pulled me right in. I didn't overly enjoy the book at first and it was hard to understand the setup of the novel. However, after reading for a while, I caught on and the story began to unfold and spark my interest. I became involved with the book and couldn't put it down. The main thing I, as a Christian, didn't enjoy was the over-excessive cuss words used throughout the entire novel. But the thought- provoking and tragedy-filled plot made up for the vile words. The author, Maureen McCarthy, did a great job at writing this amazing story. She switched back and forth from Rose being in the present to her (Rose) describing all that had happened in the past year while actually being at the location of what is happening. I highly recommend, Rose By Any Other Name, to young adults who want a totally different kind of read like no other.

There was alcohol use, excessive foul language, and some sexual scenes.
