Historical fiction writer Ann Rinaldi has received the ALA Best Book for Young Adults. Brooklyn Rose is loosely based on the life of her own grandmother.

Rose Frampton is content with life on her family's plantation in South Carolina, but the year 1900 brings many changes for the 15-year-old. She could never imagine that she would marry a Yankee and become the mistress of a New York City estate. Uprooted from the tranquil shores of Saint Helena's Island, she comes to know and love Rene, learns to make her own decisions, and finds an untapped inner strength.

    " This is the story of Ann Rinaldi's grandparents, Rose and Rene. Rose was married at fifteen and left her home in South Carolina to live with her husband in Brooklyn. Ann's mother died shortly after Ann's birth. I really enjoyed this book. "

    " Some YA books, like The Hunger Games, are well worth reading by adults. This isn't one of them. Pass it on to your 7th grade daughter but pass on it yourself. "

    " It was just a simple account of a year in a normal girls life at that time. Nothing ground breaking but an easy enjoyable read. "
