Rose Sees Red is a novel that talks about friendship between groups of teenagers, citizens of two fighting nations during Cold War.…show more content… This is a lovely and magnificent story that teenagers readers relate very much. In this novel six teenagers put aside their political associations and enjoy each other by sharing their passions, opinions, and cultures. Moreover, readers will walk away with an important lesson about people and that no matter who we are, where we come from, or what/who we believe in, we all outbuilding the same blood and want to live freely and in peace. Cecil Castellucci uses analogy and symbolism in a wonderfully subtle way, emphasizing emotional truths without misleading her readers. The novel is refreshing and encouraging. It may be a bit of a problem for some readers especially young readers when they encounter some unfamiliar place or setting of the story, readers hard to imagine because those places is not familiar of them. Some words are hard to understand because the meanings are having a deep definition. But all in all Rose Sees Red is a great novel that produced by Cecil Castellucci.
