Rosie Dunne

Remember watching those telenovelas that always went into credits when the good part was just beginning? Cecilia Ahern’s “Rosie Dunne” is a novelanovela about two best friends who just can’t get it right.

Through the use of letters, email, bills, postcards, invitations, and notes, Ms. Ahern pieces together a hilarious yet heart-wrenching story about the life and loves of Rosie Dunne and Alex Stewart. The two spend an idyllic childhood in Ireland: caught passing notes in Mrs. Big Nose Smelly Breath Casey’s class, argued about not being invited to a birthday party, got caught sending instant messages that everyone can see, and got drunk while playing hooky.

The story takes a turn when Alex leaves Ireland to study in the US. The reader will then learn to hate the name “Brian” for the rest of his life. For life for Rosie then spirals into the maze of fate, twisting and turning as the years pass.

As the weddings, baptisms, visits, parties, and funerals go by, the two maintain contact, the friendship, and the undying flame of love.

“Rosie Dunne” is a novelanovela that makes you laugh, cry, and try.
