Creepy! ( )

I loved this book, however it wasn't without its issues. I will come back to this with a more thorough review. ( )

What a creepy little book this is! The whole time I was reading it, I felt so uneasy.
Rosa is a scary little psychopath who torments her 17 year old brother Che daily. Like all psychopaths, she starts with the small things until the escalation leads to a horrible event that changes everything for everyone.
Che, who despite everything still loves his little sister, tries to get on with his life as best as he can: adapting to a new home and finding his first love.
Absolutely loved the ending. It was unexpected and quite shocking. I also think it was really well written for older teenagers: it depicted them truly and touched on subjects that are key for them.
All in all, a good, quick and creepy read. ( )

A story told by an older brother about how he thinks his sister is a psychopath. His family has just moved again and he is trying to get his sister under control because his family won't listen to his concerns. Definitely would recommend for teens, there's a bit too many religious conversations but overall, good plot. Keeps you interested, and waiting to see what Rosa will do next. ( )

The last couple of years, Che's parents have been moving them all over the place every couple of months. They've been to New Zealand, Indonesia, Thailand, Australia and now they're in New York City. Che has four goals for this new move:
1) Keep Rosa under control.
2) I want to spar
3) I want a girlfriend
4) I want to go home
By far the hardest is number one. Rosa is his ten-year-old sister. His psychopathic ten-year-old sister who checks off everything on the checklist: callousness, disinhibition, fearlessness, charisma. She hasn't physically hurt anyone yet. But Che feels like it's only a matter of time before she goes too far. And their parents are no help in keeping her under control because they won't admit there's a problem. This move to New York might be the one that finally brings things to a head and Che's dreading the coming climax.

This was a creepy book that had me on edge every time Rosa showed. The constant question of what Rosa was going to do next, who she was going to manipulate, how she was going to mess with people's head left the book with a constant feeling of suspense. At the same time, the first-person perspective had me questioning Che in so many ways. There was no doubt that Rosa exhibited a low level of empathy combined with a tendency towards cruelty that was more than a little worrisome. And Che definitely worried about her a lot. At the same time, there was a feeling that Che could have done something differently. That he could have spoken directly to a psychologist himself about his worries about Rosa. Until the last few pages, Rosa has never been formally diagnosed. Che's read the DSM himself and used that to form his opinion regarding Rosa's mental state, but he's an unqualified teenager. Instead he keeps a journal of his interactions with Rosa, recording their conversations to prove (to whom?) that she's a danger. In some ways, Che's worldview is as twisted as Rosa's is. Is that because of the way he's had to deal with Rosa all her life or because he inherited the same lack of empathy as Rosa? The number of times that someone says that Che's personal views in his journal about Rosa were disturbing makes me wonder about him and what's not being shown from his limited and biased point of view. The twists at the end felt totally out of left field and left me reeling and confused (in a good way?). They emphasized just how limited Che's experience was and how crucial POV is to the crafting of an engaging story. This was by no means my usual fare, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. ( )
