REVIEW For Rocky Road

A big, big thank you to author Rose Kent for so graciously sending me a copy of her book!

TITLE:               Rocky Road

AUTHOR:         Rose Kent

GENRE:             YA

RATING:            4 Stars

I don't read alot of middle grade books, but, for some reason, both the cover and the storyline of this one called to me.

Fortunately, I was not disappointed, as author Kent has written a deliciously funny, yet touching novel about a modern family - even if the family is not your usual dad, mom and 2.2 kids. In fact, one of the things I loved about this novel is that it is not typical, but rather, it takes a portrait of a family - showing it in all its glory - the good AND the bad and everything in between.

The main character Tess is wonderful - very smart, clever and self-reliant - i loved, loved this. The backstory of mental illness is wonderfully crafted, showing us that life is full of ups and downs and it truly is HOW you choose to deal with it that makes all the difference.
This book is a great little read for anyone who wants an interesting storyline, backed by a few solid positive messages.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and actually pretty well read it in one sitting.
