My Sister Rosa is a psychological thriller. It is both compelling and disturbing. Seventeen-year-old Che just wants a normal life, instead he has a sister, Rosa. Che knows Rosa isn’t normal and he feels the responsibility to protect others from her psychopathic tendencies. This novel raises ethical questions about what makes us who we are, what responsibilities are ours to own, and what lengths we should go to to protect others at the expense of our family.
