Amelia's Book Room: Guitar Highway Rose

Hey guys, I'm here to give you guys another book suggestion, and it's a real good one!

I picked up Guitar Highway Rose at random when I was at the library, looking for something to read to pass the time. (Strange concept in a library, huh?) First off, the cover told me that this could turn out pretty awesome. Isn't that cover just lovely? I read a few pages, and at first the writing style confused me; it takes a while to get used to. The story is about Rosie Moon and Asher Fielding, two Australian teenagers. Rosie wants a nose ring and wishes her parents would stop fighting, and her best friend is named Pippa. Asher just moved away from his home, he disobeys dress codes, and the worst thing that's happened to him is his parents' breakup. (Asher is where it gets confusing; his point of view is all lowercase with no punctuation, much like a train of thought. Kind of cool, really.)

Asher and Rosie decide that they just want to get away for a while; and so, they go hitchhiking alone about Australia, discovering all the amazing, terrible, scary, wonderful things that go along with that. After a few days, I picked this up again, and I was hooked. I stayed up way past my bedtime reading it, and finished it the next day. This road trip/family drama/love story is now one of my favorite novels. Not to mention an unexpected twist at the end that made me gasp!

Find out more about author Brigid Lowry here, and check out her 'Autobiographical Tale', it has some cool insight on writing Guitar Highway Rose. She has written several other books, including Follow The Blue and With Lots Of Love From Georgia.

Join the book club, read Ariel Arguelles' Chasing Dandelions, and have a good week! (Ooh, and leave a comment!)
