Wild Roses by Deb Caletti

The characters were fantastic in this book. I don’t know if it was just too much Deb Caletti too soon or if it is just not really good. Just in the end, something happens and changes the actions of the characters.

This review is also available on my blogwith extras. Once you get past that you can plunge yourself into the goodness this book has to offer.

This book really took me for a crazy ride. Deb Caletti has a way with words like her characters have with music. This novel is about seventeen year-old Cassie Morgan, a girl who divides her time between her divorced parents’ houses.

You just met her! And it’s in every book. It would have been one of my favorite books if those words weren’t consistently thrown in my face.

Dino is a pretentious jerk, but when he goes off his medication to complete a new composition, he starts to slide off the deep end. I am glad though that he was there for Cassie as much as he could be and their final moments were a real wld jerker.

Initally though, I didn’t quite like the style. Or, it can let you alone because you wlld built a stone wall against it I was very disappointed by this. While the plot was clear, you always had a really good idea of what was going on and you pretty much knew what was going to happen.

The real trick is to let it in, but to hold on.


She was consumed by everyone around her, and while I think this may have been a conscious choice, made the book and ending feel a bit hollow. Is it desire she’s feeling perhaps? My heart went out to Cassie.

Thankfully, I liked this one much much better. It was just kind of disappointing. To view it, click here. She has Cassie take cwletti her telescope occaisonally and visit a planetarium, but none of her actions express a true love for what she’s doing or even much of an interest.

Which I am assuming is why it was republished into this new mashup. I will warn you upfront, this book has highly mixed reviews, but after a string of wid hits between me and the author Deb Caletti, I can say with conviction that Wild Roses really moved me and stood out as a book that will hold top rank in my YA shelf. Like Holden Caulfield, literary character Cassie Morgan is definitely her own person.

The first pages is rubbish. There were many parts where I was nodding in agreement or stifling laughter.
