    This was all right. I d say it is aimed at ten year oldsthan young adults except for some underage drinking on the museum steps. There isn t really a major plot It s just about a girl that wants to have friends and has to decide if she should just be herself or be what everyone else wants her to be in order to have friends The girl, Rose, all of a sudden makes friends with the girl next door, A Russian that is pretty much under lock and key with the CIA and KGB watching her family A n This was all right.

    Rose is a dancer at heart It s hard for her to fully embrace that though because chasing her dream has proved to cost her a lot Right next door to Rose is a Russian girl In all reality she doesn t know much about her but since she can see her into her room she feels a kind a thin line of connection with her One day that all changes when the Russian girl, Yrena, decides to bridge the gap and climbs into Rose s bedroom What follows is a night to remember.In the beginning Rose is in a pretty m Rose is a dancer at heart It s hard for her to fully embrace that though because chasing her dream has proved to cost her a lot Right next door to Rose is a Russian girl In all reality she doesn t know much about her but since she can see her into her room she feels a kind a thin line of connection with her One day that all changes when the Russian girl, Yrena, decides to bridge the gap and climbs into Rose s bedroom What follows is a night to remember.In the beginning Rose is in a pretty miserable place, even if she did get into a school where she can do what she loves, it weighs heavy on her that she s alone Her supposed best friend gets jealous and forces Rose to make a choice Her friendship or dance Rose obvioulsy choses dance, and I loved her for it Anybody who would put you in a corner like that is not a friend.Things happen fairly quickly and from the onset you know for some reason Yrena isn t suppose to go out of town Trouble is going to follow them but they take the plunge anyways The story takes place around the 80 s, when there is some serious tension between America and Russia I enjoyed seeing some culture references, like the cheesy songs and no cell phones in sight Along the way Rose makes friends while showing Yrena New York City I kind of get why people make New York such a big deal after reading this story It really is a character itself What really stood out to me was the great camaraderie people can have with one another, and how Rose just couldn t see that it was right in front of her As a sidenote I had to mention her brother He s a geeky guy, but a nice geeky guy I could relate to that because I have a brother who is geeky, but he s a real decent guy I was glad to see that Rose wasn t always all alone.Towards the end I felt like the message was forced down my thoart Don t hate just love, and how stupid the Cold War was and all of that I don t like the message to be spelled out for me I prefer to come up with my own conclusions That aside the book did have a good distinct feel to it, and definitley want to readof Cecil Castellucci stories

    Although I am an admirer of Castellucci, I thought this modern day fable was also predictable and a bit of a yawn It had its moments, but we really never understand why Rose is depressed at the beginning of the novel and it seemed as if the character development was sacrificed to engineering a message fable about peace and freedom The 80 s setting was kind of fun, though But it was just kind of nice and oh so predictable You knew that Rose was going to bust out and take Yrena with her for Although I am an admirer of Castellucci, I thought this modern day fable was also predictable and a bit of a yawn It had its moments, but we really never understand why Rose is depressed at the beginning of the novel and it seemed as if the character development was sacrificed to engineering a message fable about peace and freedom The 80 s setting was kind of fun, though But it was just kind of nice and oh so predictable You knew that Rose was going to bust out and take Yrena with her for a wild night on the town, but the freedom wouldn t last for Yrena, and then the experience would bring Rose to some sort of epiphany about her own dreams, yadda yadda Compare this fable to Nothing, by Jann Teller, and you will see that it is just a wisp of a novel, really

    3.5 StarsThough this book at times was predictable I enjoyed reading this 80 s based story as it brought me back to the many memories of my youth in the 80 s The characters were believable and refreshing BeatTheBackList

    When I saw the cover of this novel by YA author diva Cecil Castellucci, I thought it was a contemporary fairy tale retelling, a la Beastly Instead, it s a novel set in the early 1980 s about the last years of the Cold War, dance, friendship, and freedom The main characters are two teenage girls Rose, a talented dancer who attends the New York High School for the Performing Arts, and her neighbor Yrena, a 16 year old ballet dancer who lives right next door in a Soviet compound Rose has given When I saw the cover of this novel by YA author diva Cecil Castellucci, I thought it was a contemporary fairy tale retelling, a la Beastly Instead, it s a novel set in the early 1980 s about the last years of the Cold War, dance, friendship, and freedom The main characters are two teenage girls Rose, a talented dancer who attends the New York High School for the Performing Arts, and her neighbor Yrena, a 16 year old ballet dancer who lives right next door in a Soviet compound Rose has given up on friendship after being dumped by her so called best friend Daisy when Rose keeps taking ballet even though Daisy decides ballet is stupid The other kids from school are not her friends either she closes herself off to the different galaxies of friends that orbit around her, since she is so afraid of being hurt again But things begin to change for Rose when her Russian neighbor, Yrena, unexpectedly climbs through her window one night What starts out as a simple trip in the neighborhood to get an ice cream cone while evading the KGB agents that follow Yrena everywhere turns out to be an all night adventure that neither girl planned but neither one will ever forget an innocent adventure that becomes an unspecified international incident When I first picked up this book, I asked myself if a book set in the 1980 s can be classified as historical fiction But then I realized that for today s teens, the Soviet Union, the arms race, and the anti nuclear rallies of the early 80 s are a whole generation ago times they never experienced A world without texting, I pods, the Internet, and even DVD s practically as foreign as the Middle Ages or ancient Rome Told in the first person by Rose, Rose Sees Red manages to keep a delicate balance of being entertaining while still putting forward a message about the universality of friendship, even in the face of nations hating each other It s a slim book 197 pages that should appeal to many teens no need to have a particular interest in U.S Soviet relations to appreciate this book

    It s about a girl named Rose who goes to a performing arts school for dance in New York in 1982 That it took place in 1982 is great, but I wish it had been made clearer in the beginning of the book There were some statements made Rose lives next to a Russian family and, well, you can see where I m going KGB, Soviet Union, etc that made me raise my eyebrow, but I honestly didn t put it together until halfway through the book That s a fairly minor complaint, though, and one of few that I It s about a girl named Rose who goes to a performing arts school for dance in New York in 1982 That it took place in 1982 is great, but I wish it had been made clearer in the beginning of the book There were some statements made Rose lives next to a Russian family and, well, you can see where I m going KGB, Soviet Union, etc that made me raise my eyebrow, but I honestly didn t put it together until halfway through the book That s a fairly minor complaint, though, and one of few that I have Rose Sees Red is short, but packs a punch Rose is a freshman and hasn t made any friends at her school yet, but she s about to.Rose Sees Red is about that night where you suddenly feel different and you know that everything will be better, even if some things won t change It s about the period of time when you go from looking in at yourself to looking out at, not just the people close to you, not just your friends and family, but the whole world It s about the epiphany of empathy There s a lotto mention, but seeing as how I just said the most important part, I ll end the review here

    It really was quite an interesting book Very insightful dialogue between the characters being set in New York was really good I am familiar with some of the sights such as the Statue of Liberty, etc that Yuena the Russian girl sees before she moves back home to Moscow.I also really enjoyed how the main character, Rose, overcame her shyness just like me and befriended Yuena Yuena appreciated the new friendship with Rose as well as the friends Rose began interacting withwhom all It really was quite an interesting book Very insightful dialogue between the characters being set in New York was really good I am familiar with some of the sights such as the Statue of Liberty, etc that Yuena the Russian girl sees before she moves back home to Moscow.I also really enjoyed how the main character, Rose, overcame her shyness just like me and befriended Yuena Yuena appreciated the new friendship with Rose as well as the friends Rose began interacting withwhom all became an amazing group of friends despite the troubled tension time periods that it was back in 1982 between the USA and Russia during the Cold War I definitely recommend readers to read this novel
