In Ashley Brooke Robbins' latest book, her main character, Rose, is having one of those bad days. When her headache hits, she passes out.
Just today I had a doozie. The worst I've had in a while. The over the counter meds didn't help, but ice on my head, a dark room and a nap did wonders. Now I'm sure I'm not like Rose (I am not at the beach-bummer) but her headaches are really something....Check out the story to find out.
My name is Rose, and welcome to the summer break before my senior year. You’d think I’d be a little more excited, sorry to disappoint. My mom thinks I’m in a state of depression. I yell how nuts she is…then begin snot-crying, uncontrollably. So embarrassing.
I live on a small island named Luna Bay, in North Carolina. I should be getting excited like the rest of the teenage population to venture off into the enchanting world of endless exams and studying—college. Instead, I spend my days hiding out in my room, living vicariously through the lives of fictional characters.
Until my whole world turns upside down when I throw water in an innocent guy’s face. That’s when the headaches start, the blackouts and general craziness, ya know, more so than normal.
“Sometimes the worst possible situation turns into something great. Something you’ll never forget…remember that.”—Rose Kaylin.
