Cecelia Ahern has written the astounding novel entitled, Love, Rosie. It describes the friendship and lives of Rosie and Alex. Rosie and Alex have been best friends ever since they could remember, but both their lives will turn upside down. First, Alex tells Rosie that his family is moving away from Dublin and to Boston. Rosie is devastated, but they still keep their friendship strong, even though Alex has moved thousands of miles away. Alex and Rosie were supposed to attend the Debs, a ball, together. Things do not go as planned because Alex cannot make it back to Dublin to go with her. Instead, Rosie has to find a last minute date, Brian the whine. She does not talk to Alex for what she thinks is a week, but is really three. Rosie then discovers that she is pregnant, and decides to keep the child because she vowed that she would never abandon her child. Rosie and Alex always keep in touch with one another throughout the years, and people still try to tell them that they are perfect for each other. Rosie and Alex each have to find creative ways to reach their dreams. In the end, they will have to realize for themselves, if they were really meant to be together.
Cecelia Ahern’s writing style is easy to understand and it is neither too wordy, nor too formal. She writes the novel as if she were a teenager so it is easy for people to read. This book would appeal to anyone who wants to laugh while reading, and to people who like a little romance in their novels. Elizabeth B.; Teen Reviewer
