Maggie blames her mom for the family's disintegration: "She's driven him away with her constant nagging and complaining and arguing. Honestly, who could stand to live with that woman?" she vents to her friend Claire. However, there's more to the story, and Maggie desperately wants to know the truth--something nobody seems willing to tell her. The eighth book in the TrueColors teen fiction series, "Bitter Rose" takes an honest look at divorce, forgiveness, and relationships.
