4.0 out of 5 stars A novel as beautiful, scary, and unpredictable as Rose herself, May 26, 2006
This review is from: Rose of No Man's Land (Hardcover)
This novel happens over 24 hours, when 14-year-old Trisha meets the dangerous and unpredictable Rose, who is a year older. More serious & poetic than C.D. Payne's 'Youth in Revolt;' not as bleak as Lynda Barry's 'Cruddy,' 'Rose of No Man's Land' is another contemporary coming-of-age story, beautifully written with candy-wrapped gems of observation. For the cautious Trisha, it's like having Courtney Love as a best friend for one day. I wished I knew what happened over the next week, for example, but we won't hear what happens afterwards unless Tea writes a sequel. [But what's with the cover photograph? The willowy model has nothing at all to do with the story, which would have been better done by one of Francesca Lia Block's illustrators.]
