Roses (Point) Reviews
This is my first Traditional Tale novel.
Roses is a YA novel written for high school. It is a modern day Beauty and the Beast. Izzy is a sexual teenager that likes a new hot guy. Her father does not approve and picks a rose from a rose bush and damages the rose while picking it. A ugly noseless owner appears and makes them repay for damaging his rose. This book can be used for guided reading groups to discuss original fairytales and how this novel changed it to modern day. The potential problems may be some sexual content.
