My Sister Rosa: This book is my kind of crazy

TITLE: My Sister Rosa
AUTHOR: Justine Larbalestier
GENRE: YA Contemporary Thriller
PUBLICATION DATE: November 15, 2016 by Soho Teen

AMAZON | GOODREADS | BARNES & NOBLE
What if the most terrifying person you know is your ten-year-old sister? Seventeen-year-old Aussie Che Taylor loves his younger sister, Rosa. But he’s also certain that she’s a diagnosable psychopath—clinically, threateningly, dangerously. Recently Rosa has been making trouble, hurting things. Che is the only one who knows; he’s the only one his sister trusts. Rosa is smart, talented, pretty, and very good at hiding what she is and the violence she’s capable of. Their parents, whose business takes the family from place to place, brush off the warning signs as Rosa’s “acting out.” Now that they have moved again—from Bangkok to New York City—their new hometown provides far too many opportunities for Rosa to play her increasingly complex and disturbing games. Alone, Che must balance his desire to protect Rosa from the world with the desperate need to protect the world from her.

4 of My Blog Post Essentials

After nearly ten (TEN!!) months of blogging, I’ve finally found a typical style for me to use on my blog posts. If you’ve been here since the beginning (last September or October), you’re probably aware of how I’ve changed from “Nervous girl who doesn’t know if being polite and using deep English is the only acceptable way to blog and has no idea what she's doing 99% of the time” to “Oh who cares I’m using all caps and GIFs as much as I want” sort of girl.

(Of course, I still have no idea what I'm doing, but still.)

I can pretty much say I’ve evolved (or changed, but I like using evolve because POKÉMON) a lot. Especially on my reviews.

But I’m not here to compare how I’ve changed these past few months. That’s a blog post for another time. I’m here to show you guys the essential things my blog posts should almost always (of not all the time) have.
