    1. “YOU SHOULD HAVE DIED,”This was a YA mystery story about a girl paralysed after being knocked down by a car.Jane was a strong character, although it was a little frustrating the way she couldn’t remember what had happened the night of the accident. It was unfair the way that everyone thought she was crazy when she kept going on about someone trying to kill her, but I could see why they would think that as they even had her doubting herself.The storyline in this was about Jane receiving thr [...]

    2. Scrolling about Rosebush's page in GR I realize that I am, it seems, one of the few people who actually love this book. Why that is, I have no idea at all. Seriously. I've read some thrillers (most of them weren't YA because we all know how shitty those can be) and even though some of them were deemed the best by God knows how many people, to me Rosebush ranks right up there with Justine Larbalestier's Liar and Colleen McCullough's On, Off. This book is good, you guys. Actually, good doesn't beg [...]

    3. Listen, Michele Jaffe, I like you. I do. Also, I like your books. You are funny. That interview you did? Where they had you play MASH? And you put Santa as one of your husband possibilities? That was hilar. But this book! You were trying to be serious! Why? Why did you do that? It's like when I don't smile in pictures. It just doesn't work so I don't do it. Please don't ever do this again, ok? Just write some more Bad Kitty books so I can lol some. Also, your ending was a tiny bit dumb. Just say [...]

    4. Ugh. I will never get back those six hours I spent on this tripe. I liked Jaffe's first book, Bad Kitty, so looked forward to this new title. I should've known I was in for a lousy read when a main character's name is spelled Nikki on one of the first pages, then Nicky throughout the rest of the book. Confusing, off-kilter pacing, stock characters, designer label name-dropping, unnecessary(except to titillate) same-sex kissing, and a completely unbelievable mother to top it off. Yuck! Oh, and th [...]

    5. If you like YA and who-done-its, then this is a good one for you. Lots of mysterious clues will lead you down a dozen different paths making it hard to figure out who is after our heroine. All the gifts left in the hospital scared me more than anything else. Creepy!

    6. I can't rate this. Too many conflicting emotions.On the one hand, I love, love the premise. I love the way the author told the story, with a prologue of the present and then alternating between the night of the accident and Jane's recovery. It was very effective. I loved a lot of the symbolism in there and the mystery. And the book is truly poignant - within the first 100 pages I was crying so hard I could barely see the page. (Annie. That sweet little girl kills me.)The heroine is not very admi [...]

    7. GRADE: B4 STARSROSEBUSH, a delightful surprise, begins with as Jane wakes from a coma, unable to remember the hit and run accident that left her for dead beneath a ROSEBUSH. Was she trying to commit suicide? Surely her perfect boyfriend and perfect friends couldn't be at fault. The police think she's hallucinating or lying, even after she starts receiving threatening messages.Although Jane was unkind to her mother and her soon-to-be stepfather, I believed she was a good person beneath the surfac [...]

    8. I really don't know what to think of this. Some bits were really annoying, but other bits were really really good.What i didn't like: The flashbacks - They were very jumpy. Jane would be talking to someone in a flashback, then carry on the conversation she was having in present tense. It made it really confusing at times. The characters - Jane really annoyed me at the beginning, All she cared about was popularity. On her first day, she locked herself in the schools bathrooms because she wasn't p [...]

    9. The only reason I neglected to rate this four stars was because a) this book will probably give me nightmares tonight and b) this book was to say the leasta bit confusing. Yes it was a page turner and a thriller and yes it did keep me on the edge but some things just confused me and left me rereading the page more than I already do. I'm not sure if it was just more or if this wasn't developed well to others too.*SPOILERS*Well to start out her memories confused me. It took me a while to figure ou [...]

    10. DO YOU KNOW HOW PAINFUL IT WAS FOR ME TO FINISH THIS BOOK??? Do you know how much I was looking forward to reading this, after reading the back of it and thinking 'Oh, this is going to be good!'??? Do you know how BORING this is?! To answer all three of those questions: very very painful, extremely excited to get my hands on it, and so boring that I wanted to claw my eyes out. The premise of this book is intriguing. Girl gets run over and is found in a rosebush left for dead. Girl stays in hospi [...]

    11. This book was fantastically well thought out. At the first time I set eyes on it the cover drew me to read the back. After finding out what I was getting myself into I just had to read it. It was so gripping that I read it none-stop. Even when it was two in the morning I couldn't put it down. (beware - may contain spoilers)I always thought that the killer was Ollie, but even though he was partly in the blame it was completely obvious who it was, yet not. When I found out who it was it was only b [...]

    12. Based on the book description, I started Rosebush expecting friends with secrets. Friends who are covering their asses from the law. Misunderstandings. What I got instead is a pushover, naive, and people pleasing heroine who can't see that her friends and love interest(s) are toxic. The scenes with her boyfriend made me ill - it was very obvious that he was manipulative and mentally abusive. I stopped on page 136 and started skimming ahead. The villain wasn't a total surprise, even with all the [...]

    13. Look, I've got no use for Gossip Girls/Clique sort of crap.So having waded through the opening and the first chapter's worth of breathless descriptions of beautiful shallow people with expensive lives,I skipped to the end, got the sort of pretty obvious solution/happy ending I was expecting, and put this one on the shelf for the girls who sulk because I don't buy Gossip Girls/Clique books for my branch.Sigh.

    14. Truthfully, all the characters in this book are so messed up that any one of them could have committed murder (or at least been heavily involved in a murder cover up.) Every relationship, even the ones that ultimately prove legit, is so shallow that the ending seems contrived and hollow. Don't bother with this book.

    15. Nel cespuglio di rose si nasconde un nido di vipereÈ molto difficile dover scrivere una recensione su The Gap cercando di mantenersi “vaghi” sulla trama: la suspense è davvero la cosa che del libro mi ha più colpita, e dare troppe indicazioni sarebbe un grave spoiler, che rovinerebbe la lettura a chiunque volesse affrontarla. Il romanzo si apre con la protagonista in ospedale, vittima di un incidente stradale: è stata investita da un’auto e ritrovata in un cespuglio di rose. È complet [...]

    16. I really liked the mystery. I kept changing my mind about who did it and I did not predict that ending lol.

    17. When Jane wakes up in hospital, she has no recollection of being run over by a car and left for dead by the side of the road. She was out with her friends at a party to celebrate the beginning of the long weekend, but Jane doesn’t know why she left the party and was walking, alone, when she was hit.Jane is paralyzed for the moment with doctors hopeful that she will regain full use of her limbs in due course, once she has recovered. As abilities begin to come slowly back to her, such as being a [...]

    18. I didn't love this book butI didn't hate it either. It was just okay. There were a lot of parts where I was like "yeah rightat so wouldn't happen" but about halfway through it got to be pretty interesting. However, it took me quite a long time to get into the book at all. There were times at the beginning that I didn't think I'd be able to finish it at all.This book kinda reminded me of the old classic movie "Gaslight". A young woman gets married and then thinks she is going crazy only to find o [...]

    19. The Long Story ? - I'm not much of a mystery/suspense reader because they're usually too mysterious and too suspenseful to keep me from peeking at the ending. Which is exactly what I did, I peeked, I saw and it took the mystery out of it, now you know why I usually stick with predicable contemporaries or wacky paranormals. However, I really enjoyed it, like I really, really, really liked this book. Honestly, I'm very fascinated with this concept of high school where teenagers would do anything t [...]

    20. Rosebush Penguin Group, 2010, 326pp, $16.99 Michele Jaffe ISBN978-59514-353-2         “The image is stark yet beautiful. In the foreground and slightly to the right, set in blue-gray grass, is a fantastic bush. It looks like something from a fairy tale, a witch cursed into an alternate form, gnarled fingers reaching for the sky. In the center lies a girl.”    That girl is Jane Freeman. In Michele Jaffe's, Rosebush, a dramatic mystery novel, Jane awakens in a hospital and finds o [...]

    21. I am a huge mystery thriller junkie. I love anything mystery, especially if it keeps me guessing and thinking and trying to figure out who the murderer is, but in Rosebush's case, it is who wants to see Jane dead. Someone who is still persistent even after Jane ends up almost dying and gets put in the hospital. The phone messages, the secret admirer gifts, it was all so creepy! I really didn't know who the murderer is, and I usually have a gift when it comes to figuring out who the murderer is i [...]

    22. When I received an ARC for this book, I have to admit that I was intrigued. I mean, how could I not want to know what happens to this poor girl who ends up left for dead in a rosebush? Of course I wanted to know what happened, and get to know this characterJane Freeman is just like every other popular teenage girl in high school. She has two very close friends--Kate and Langley--a gorgeous boyfriend--David--as well a friend who shares her interest in photography--Scott. She loves taking pictures [...]

    23. I really don't know what's going on with my taste in books lately. I rarely read mysteries, but I've read loads in the last few months. And even though I've read quite a few now, Rosebush is by far my favorite!The suspense in Rosebush is amazing, so well-done. There wasn't a minute while reading this book where I wasn't either completely terrified or trying to figure out who the killer is. It's so compelling to find out what happened alongside Jane, seeing how everything she slowly remembers add [...]

    24. Jane is found in a rosebush bloody and dying and with absolutely no memory of how she got there.The police officer informs her that her injuries were from being hit by a car while kneeling in the street. There are only one of two way that could have happened: Either it was suicide or she trusted the driver. Not a bad premise for a book.Now comes the spoilery part of my review:I have to hand it to the author, I did not guess whodunit. I am disappointed in myself, though, because I should have gue [...]

    25. I have such mixed feelings towards this book.I couldn't decide whether to rate it 1, 2, or 3 stars I decided on 2.You see, until about the book's plot started really picking up I loathed this book with a passion. I sort of hate it still. If my heart wasn't pounding right now from all the intensity (I just finished it and I still feel excited! Crazy how reading a book can make you feel that much adrenaline) it would have got a one star. I must admit, this author does know how to keep you on your [...]

    26. Jane Freeman has no idea what the hell happened when she wakes up in the hospital. She's told she was in a hit and run accident but it seems too easy for an explanation. So she pieces together the clues left behind by her friends all the while trying to convince the doctors, her family and herself that she isn't crazy.I am honestly mind blown. This caught me off guard completely. Every time I thought I knew who it was, I was dead wrong. Every damn time. I really thought this was a wonderful book [...]

    27. When I picked up this book, I had heard of neither the author nor the book itself. However, I thought that this book was wonderful! It is a great portrait of the apparently popular, has-it-all girl who gets a reality check of the most extreme variety. I loved the mystery aspect in this novel (of course) and coupled with the classic teenage romance and drama makes a terribly wonderful, I couldn't put it down, marvellous and engaging story. I am a totally upstanding, never been-to-a-drinking-party [...]

    28. I felt very conflicted about this book. I thought the beginning was brilliant. I loved the mystery, was dying to get to the end.And then the end came. I honestly did not see it coming. But that's because it was really RANDOM. I'm not gonna lie, I really didn't like it. I just don't understand the person's motive, or rather, the lack of a motive. Am I supposed to believe that the person is just crazy? I don't get it.I felt that toward the end, the author just kept introducing all these new suspec [...]

    29. *Please note that the two-star rating comes from personal opinion on the plot and does not in anyway reflect that superb writing in this book. Please enter "killer" and "it" at the appropriate times for "spoiler" if you have not read this book yet.* The writing in this books deserves 4 out of 5 stars. It was CREEPY. The horror part was really well-done, a perfect mixture of traditional and modern. The author did an excellent job at making everyone a suspect, so that when the ending came who the [...]
