360 Staff Pick: Rosie and Skate
Monday, March 15, 2010 - 11:33 AM
Rosie and Skate are sisters; they have each other's backs even as they bicker and spar. Forced to navigate the world as adults a few years too soon, while stumbling through first loves and the horrors of high school, they're wiser than most teens in fiction. Officially a young adult novel, Rosie and Skate belongs in the hands of anyone who loves a good read. Bauman’s evocation of the Jersey shore setting is so vivid, you'll hear the seagulls and taste the salt in the breeze.
