Awesome Summer Read
This book is one of my favorite books about a girl who lives an ordinary life until she meets Asher, the new kid in town. Asher is going through tough times, he just moved in town with his mom because of his parents divorce and is forced to attend a school that has a dress code. Asher has a hard time fitting in and being accused of stealing a teachers wallet is the last straw. He decides to run away, and Rosie insists on going with him. The two learn many valuable life lessons on the trip, and learn what it means to love. The story has a great plot and never gets boring. I highly recommend reading this novel.

Good Golly this was a great book!
There are many reasons I really enjoyed this book. One of the main reasons is that fact that the point of view changes every few pages. First it will be in Rosie's view, then Asher's, then Lily, and so on. Also I love teen-age romance stories and this was a perfect example of one, because you know both Asher¿s and Rosie¿s thoughts, it makes the connection between the two much more interesting. It isn¿t just a one sided story. The character of Asher really interested me, because he seemed like the kind of person I would love to know. Another thing was the style of writing that Brigid Lowry uses is very different. For instance at some points I the book a whole section won¿t contain one capitol ¿i¿, or one punctuation. For those reasons and many more I strongly suggest that you read this book. It¿s one of the best books I¿ve read in quite a while.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I've read this twice, and I wasn't really able to appreciate it the first time I read it, I was too young (like, say eleven or twelve) to grasp its brilliance. This book is cute, quirky and fun. It alternates from almost all of the characters point of view, and gives their take on the situation. But what I really loved about is that it was written so amazingly. Everything is described vividly and uniquely and utterly great. Guitar Highway Rose is one of the reasons why literature is Wonderful and powerful and amazing. It's a must read for anyone looking for something unique, with breath takingly real characters. (Which I'd say is most everyone.)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
