A rose should be red: Part 1 - Secrets

by Akaku Red

Children's & YA Fiction Crime and Mystery

LoveReading Expert Review of A rose should be red: Part 1 - Secrets

An unpredictable storyline and a positive, refreshing change of subject to find on the young adult bookshelves.

Imagine having your life turned upside down when one day you're told to pack all your belongings and are moving to a large city there and then. You're still with your familiar adoptive mother but your adoptive father has passed away. But there's a problem, Jenny hates London-the city which is her new home.

The family are helped to settle in by Tyler, who appears to be a godsend and a good ally. But it's not all good news. Secrets are uncovered, another name won't leave Jenny alone and unsettles her even though she can't recall him. Just who can she trust?

The author writes so descriptively taking the reader on a twisty, well-thought out journey. An excellent read and not just for young adults.  Luckily the second title in the series has just been published!

A rose should be red: Part 1 - Secrets Synopsis

When love is blind, danger can hide! 

Almost overnight, Jenny’s everyday life is turned upside down. Her father dies suddenly. Her mother uproots them both and brings them to London to live. A place she hasn’t been since she was a child. For her, it’s a dark place, the few memories she has are painful. 

Her new school is a nightmare. The only silver lining to her dark cloud is Tyler Williams, the gorgeous blue-eyed boy who is close to stealing her heart. Or might be if she could bring herself to let love in.

Strange things keep happening. A boy claims to know her from childhood, but she has no memory of him. There’s no trace of her old best friend, Alice, no matter how hard she looks. And worst of all, someone is watching her. 

Old memories are resurfacing. Jenny starts to realize that she is caught in the middle of a dangerous game that stretches from her past to her present.

And now it might be too late to escape it.

The truth will set you free… if it doesn’t kill you first
