Part love story, part road story, Guitar Highway Rose is a witty novel of first love, adventure and being fifteen.;

Sometimes we know we shouldn't and that's exactly why we do.

Rosie Moon is restless. She wants to do something, be someone be someone else. Asher is the new boy in her class. He has dreadlocks, a guitar and a case of the lonesome gypsy blues.

Some ideas are not born of logic and good sense. They sprout from nowhere and feed on excitement, sprinkled with adventure juice and the sweet flavour of the forbidden.

Brigid Lowry's Guitar Highway Rose freewheels through the darker and lighter sides of life with wit, charm and compassion.
