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.
