The book's title intrigued me and I brought it home and started reading as soon as I could. And thankfully, I was not disappointed.

Rosa is a young girl who's family has recently moved to the country sides because of her little brother's asthma issues that seemed to become graver in the pollution-clad city. Obviously, Rosa misses her city-life and friends, but still like a good girl, keeps at faking she is absolutely fine. Inside, she is unhappy and expects boredom from the massive change.

I read this a long time ago so I'm going to do my best to remember it. I would go down to my library to get it but it's closed due to renovations.


Setting - Okay. It's set outside of Edinburgh somewhere and it's a bit rural I think. I love Scotland so the setting pretty much won me over from the beginning.

Characters - Rosa wasn't annoying like other YA protagonists and wasn't flat. I find that YA books geared towards girls tend to have flat protagonists so it's easier for the reade
