Rose by Any Other Name
Don'tcha just hate the way you get caught up in stuff without really wanting to? You make a wrong move, and before you know it you're in some weird scene that isn't you but . . . how do you get out of it? Maybe you lied, maybe you stole, maybe you betrayed your closest friend. It happens. Yeah. Then it goes a bit further, and suddenly you're one of those jerks you hate because . . . you can't be trusted.
Rose is all packed up. She's got a van full of petrol and a stack of CDs. She's got a surfboard in the back and a secret that won't go away. But that's okay. She also has enough attitude to light up the night sky. Then her mother decides to come along . . . and Rose's road trip takes an unplanned U-turn, straight to the heart of last summer.
This book is very interesting, and a good read.

Rose O'Neill, a young woman who has the world at her feet. Her future as a lawyer seems assured with a great HSC mark and her love life is looking up when she meets Nat, the university student who just moved into her street. However, this perfect picture starts to fall apart when her father leaves her mother for another woman.
Nineteen year old Rose is in a mess. Her friendship with best friend Zoe has diminished, her parents have split up and her romance with Nat has stalled. Rose feels she is to blame for everything, especially the dark secret that is burdening her....
All Rose needs to escape are an old van, her surfboard, the road, the ocean, and...her mum? When Rose's mother jumps in the passenger seat right as Rose is about to set off, her trip takes an unexpected turn, filled with nagging memories from last year, and the looming scandal that refuses to be ignored. Little does she know their journey to Port Fairy to visit Rose's ailing grandmother will be a turning point in their lives. A twisting plot that keeps you guessing, told from the viewpoint of a realistically imperfect yet irritable main character, makes this a book that just can't be put down.
it really relates to todays society
any other books about surfing or teenagers lives
moving and sad in parts
