Kirkus Book Review:
"Rosa clearly writes from the heart, drafting prose with a passion and intensity indicative of an author who believes strongly in what she has to say. Her use of settings is powerful and rich, vividly bringing to life the varied locales of her stories."
It's almost like being at Puerto Rico’s el Yunque Rainforest when you forage for exotic plants with José Esperanza and discover all sorts of interesting animals. Entertaining reading for middle school students and adults. Find MUSINGS OF YUKIYÚ at Amazon.com.
After reading Fractured by C. Scoushe Rosa, I recommend it highly for the following:
Reality is presented and received from a joyful and practical point of view. The reading is informative & attention holding thus the reader becomes part of the narrative.
The characters are funny, active and interesting and one feels that they are part of your every day life.
The author is knowledgeable & well versed in her subject matter. To conclude, she enjoys sharing her wisdom with her readers. - T. H.
Novice detective Natalie Faye and her quirky associates will have you in stitches in this fast paced detective mystery, where a construction crew has unearthed the body of a young mother and her newborn infant. C. Scoushe Rosa has a knack for finding silver linings in sad situations.
