Rosie and Skate

(2009)
A novel by

 
A wonderful YA debut full of drama for two very different sisters.

It's off-season at the Jersey shore, when the boardwalk belongs to the locals. Rosie is 15 and her sister Skate is 16. Their dad, an amiable drunk, is spending a few weeks in jail while their cousin Angie looks after them in their falling-down Victorian on the beach. Skate and her boyfriend Perry are madly in love, inseparable - until now, when Perry goes off to Rutgers. Rosie is shyer than Skate, but she's drawn to Nick, a boy in their Alateen group. What happens to Rosie and Skate in a few tumultuous weeks is deftly shaded, complex, and true. Readers will be caught up in each girl's shifting feelings as the story plays out within the embrace of their warmhearted community.
