Book of the Month - September 2020

By Emi Takatsuka '25

Emi writes about her favorite book of the month, "Under Rose-Tainted Skies" by Louise Gornall. Find out why this is her favorite.  

     I read 10 books in September. My favorite book of the month was the last book I read, Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall. This book was about a girl who has OCD. She hasn’t left the house in years. A new boy moves into town, and he comes over to Norah’s house. This book explores what it’s like to have OCD, and how people can change you. 

     I really enjoyed this book. It was a bit sad for me, but I really loved it anyways. The book made me think a lot. Sometimes the book was a bit hard to follow, and it could be agonizing to read about someone who wants something so badly, but can’t have it. However, I think this book was what made the book so interesting. I really liked the ending, and the writing was very good. I think you really got to see Norah change as a person, and this was so much fun to read about. I’d highly recommend this book!
