Released: August 28 2012
Favorite Quote: “No fear. “
Rose Zarelli is fourteen, a freshman in high school, and seems to have the weight of the world on her shoulders. She feels as though everyone she loves has left her. Her father died over the summer, her brother has left for college, and her mother seems to have left life. When Rose runs into an old friend of her brother’s, Jamie Forta, her tentative crush for him develops into something deeper. Unfortunately, he has a girlfriend whose harassment has Rose looking over her shoulder all the time. Dealing with changing friendships and divided loyalties, Rose’s navigation through the treacherous hallways of high school is leaving her feeling a little…angry.
Confessions Of An Angry Girl is an interesting view of high school and life, told through the eyes of a fourteen year old. A solid plot line and humorous dialogue hooked me immediately into the story. Ms. Rozett does a wonderful job of maintaining a realistic setting and tone throughout the story. We are treated to a trip down memory lane as Rose has to try to understand and deal with the changes that high school brings and where her place in it all is. Rose Zarelli has had a rough summer but tries to deal with it as she starts her freshman year of high school. Told in a youthful voice, our MC brings to life the raging emotions and overblown sense of life in general that is readily apparent in this age group. High school is such a traumatic, confusing time of life to begin with but Rose also has outside drama that only adds to her emotional turmoil. No topic is off limits for Rose or us. In here we deal with drinking, death, sex, romance, bullying, crappy lunches and everything else that made high school such a large part of our lives.
