Rosie, the first of international author Anne Lamott's best-selling trilogy about a mother and her daughter, is both a witty and wise coming-of-age novel about the growing pains of motherhood.
Following her father's death, Rosie, a wild and open-hearted young girl, grows older and becomes more curious.
Meanwhile, Rosie's mother Elizabeth must find a way to nurture her extraordinary daughter while grappling with her own demons - sliding further and further away from reality, Elizabeth finally realises she is an alcoholic.
Lamott's inimitable style and prose fashions an emotive story about how two forceful and complex individuals rebuild their family of two.
Rosie will appeal to aficionados of Jodi Piccoult's novels, as well as readers of coming-of-age novels and popular fiction.
