Write a Review

After her father passes away, seventeen-year-old Rosie is forced to live with her stepmom Lucy and her deadbeat, younger boyfriend, Judd. Desperate for a way out, Rosie would do just about anything to escape the life that fate has handed to her. Then she finds a letter her dad wrote years ago, a letter confessing that Rosie's birth mother isn't dead, as she believed, but alive somewhere - having left them when Rosie was a little girl for reasons he won't reveal.

Rosie resolves to find her birth mom, and she'll put everything on the line to make that happen. She hires a PI and pays him with money earned by her best friend, Mary, who turns tricks for money. Unlike Rosie, Mary's no delicate flower and when she sees the opportunity to make some cash and help out her closest friend, she takes it. Romance blooms when the PI Rosie hires hands the case off to his handsome nephew Mac, but Rosie struggles to keep her illicit activities with Mary a secret. Things really begin to unravel when Rosie starts getting creepy anonymous texts from johns looking for Mary. And then there's Mary, the one person Rosie can count on, who's been acting strangely all of a sudden. As Rosie and Mary get closer and closer to finally uncovering the truth about Rosie's mom, Rosie comes face to face with a secret she never saw coming. A visceral, poignant tale of friendship, sacrifice and identity, Rosie Girl is an unforgettable debut that will leave you guessing till the very last page.
