Rosie Colored Glasses
by Brianna Wolfson
Fiction
From The Jacket:SEEING THE WORLD THROUGH ROSIE COLORED GLASSES Just as opposites attract, they can also cause friction, and no one feels that friction more than Rex and Rosie’s daughter, Willow. Rex is serious and unsentimental and tapes checklists of chores on Willow’s bedroom door. Rosie is sparkling and enchanting and meets Willow in their treehouse in the middle of the night to feast on candy. After Rex and Rosie’s divorce, Willow finds herself navigating their two different worlds. She is clearly under the spell of her exciting, fun-loving mother. But as Rosie’s behavior becomes more turbulent, the darker underpinnings of her manic love are revealed. Rex had removed his Rosie colored glasses long ago, but will Willow do the same? Whimsical, heartbreaking and uplifting, this is a novel about the many ways love can find you. Rosie Colored Glasses triumphs with the most endearing examples of how mothers and fathers and sons and daughters bend for one another.
A moving story about a carefree spirited woman, a serious disciplined man and complicated relationship that develops between them. Rosie and Rex never should have married, but they did. They never should have had children. But, they did. What follows is not only a story of the push and pull of divorced parents sharing responsibilities, but a lesson in different parenting styles and a story that examines many issues. Excellent, recommend.
