Bitter Rose: Color me Crushed by Melody Carlson

Back Cover: One night, Maggie comes home from youth group to learn that her mom and dad just had another huge fight. But this time, her dad is moving out- as in "there's-nothing-in-the-closet-not-even-an-unmatched-sock" moving out. This one looks bad. My life is officially over. Maggie blames her mom for the family's disintegration. "She's driven him away with her constant nagging and complaining and arguing. Honestly, who could stand to live with that woman?" she vents to her friend Claire. However, there's more to the story, and Maggie desperately wants to know the truth-something nobody seems willing to tell her. OK This is really annoying because all the images of this book are wrong, this color is like freaking purple! And the book is like light pink, the color of this writing, so just decided to say that cuz it annoyed me alot, anyways. The book was pretty good. I think as well it didn't have as much as the one sense of emotion, but it was still there alot. And man Maggie just hated her mom one moment and her dad the next, it's crazy. And it sucked because she was the only one at home since her brother and sister were gone! It was so sad and unexpected though when her aunt died! I was like what! outta nowhere, and with that older guy who basically wanted to have sex with her and he says she's too young haha yeah right. even if it was someone her own age and they just met she wouldnt have sex with him either. arg. But yeah I liked it and it was very sad and hard to forgive but for sure that's one of the hardest things in life to do!
