Rose Zarelli just lost her father in an explosion at Iraq. Her dad was a contractor and you might wonder why the hell he ended up in a war, which is usually a playground for military. This grief brought her into madness. She barely talked to her mom since her dad died. Peter, her older brother, left for college and turned to be someone else. She only had Tracy, her very best friend, and Robert, who actually likes her from the sixth grade. Everything got more complicated when she met Jamie Forta. Tracy and Robert were easy to find out that Rose fell for him. But did she? She wasn't sure. Everybody kept telling her to stay away from him.

My version of Jamie Forta
Rose had crush on him since the seventh grade, a few years before she went to Union High. She never believed that Jamie had an eye on her. Was it love, or it was something else? Jamie's girlfriend, Regina, was in the squad, and they had been dating since like forever. Jamie had a little story how he and Regina ended up being together. He owned her, like very much! But they had kissed twice. Would everything be the same? You bet. Everything had changed. All the harassment, the graffiti (which said '911 Bitch'), the confusing stuffs, were all what Rosie had to experienced in high school. Doesn't sound cool, right?

This book brings more than romance, but also bullying and new vocabularies. It's like another love story from Harlequin Teen, which is light and very recommended if you feel like tired and need refreshment. Although this kind of story is nothing new, I didn't get bored, at all! I like the innocent Rosie, who was very commit to against sex for freshmen. I appreciate the way she responded to Regina, the cheer-witch. She was just fourteen and left alone in brief, but she acted like a mature girl. Yes, she cried more often, but she wasn't a girl who depends on other. She was just a teenager, who tried to find a way out from high school universe.

Even she didn't tell the principle who did those graffiti, she wasn't afraid of Regina. She beat her down! But it seemed doesn't stop her to being mean. Now Rosie had her best friend back. They finally decided to take revenge on Regina. They're not that kind of girl, but Rosie totally can't wait for it. Will they do it? Will Regina stop attacking her? Well, let's see on the second book, Confession of an Almost-Girlfriend. Another thing that I like the most from this book is those new vocabulary. Well, I am still learning English. It's just great to learn new vocabularies, which are probably not that important, but still, I think they might be helpful someday ;)
