Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4–6—Because she has Asperger's syndrome, Rose Howard is obsessed with homonyms, rules, and order. She has a hard time containing her emotions and a teacher's aid must sit with her during class. Dealing with her condition is difficult for Rose's father, who is raising her alone, but thanks to her dog, Rain, a caring uncle, and a new friend, Rose may just find the strength to be her very best self. Laura Hamilton takes on the challenging role of Rose without missing a beat. She puts just the right pauses in her speech as she struggles to make herself understood and takes on a slightly robotic tone each time Rose comes across a homonym and must carefully repeat each of the words. Her matter-of-fact yet youthful tone is perfect, and her use of pitch emphasizes each time Rose becomes upset or frustrated. Hamilton also is able to expertly use a lower range for Rose's emotionally distant father and her uncle. VERDICT This is an ideal family listen about the power of family and the bond between a girl and her dog.—Shari Fesko, Southfield Public Library, MI

Review

Rose is a character we root for every step of the way. She is resilient, honest, and, in her own odd way, very perceptive; a most reliable narrator. "The Horn Book, starred review"

Though Rose's story is often heartbreaking, her matter-of-fact narration provides moments of humor. Readers will empathize with Rose, who finds strength and empowerment through her unique way of looking at the world. "School Library Journal, starred review"

Simplicity, clarity, and emotional resonance are hallmarks of Rose's first-person narrative, which offers an unflinching view of her world from her perspective . . . A strong story told in a nuanced, highly accessible way. "Booklist, starred review"

Martin has penned a riveting, seamless narrative in which each word sings and each scene counts. "Kirkus Reviews, starred review"

Newbery Honor author Martin ("A Corner of the Universe") is extremely successful in capturing Rose's perspective and personality... "Publishers Weekly, starred review""
