Rosebush by Michele Jaffe

Blurb (from Goodreads):
Instead of celebrating Memorial Day weekend on the Jersey Shore, Jane is in the hospital surrounded by teddy bears, trying to piece together what happened last night. One minute she was at a party, wearing fairy wings and cuddling with her boyfriend. The next, she was lying near-dead in a rosebush after a hit-and-run. Everyone believes it was an accident, despite the phone threats Jane swears were real. But the truth is a thorny thing. As Jane's boyfriend, friends, and admirers come to visit, more memories surface-not just from the party, but from deeper in her past . . . including the night her best friend Bonnie died.

With nearly everyone in her life a suspect now, Jane must unravel the mystery before her killer attacks again. Along the way, she's forced to examine the consequences of her life choices in this compulsively readable thriller.

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars


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 threatening messages, and slowly getting her memory back about what happened to her. There were several suspects, and also the mystery over whether or not Jane was just imagining all of it, and I didn’t guess what had really happened.

The ending to this was okay, although I was a little disappointed that we didn’t find out what had happened to Bonnie.

7 out of 10
