Twelve-year-old Rosetta has an issue. God speaks to her and fills her lifestyles with pleasure and sure bet she longs to percentage. yet on most sensible of the standard challenge that not anyone listens to children, each time she attempts to speak about God, humans ship her to "specialists." Worse but, the most recent journey to a consultant went horribly fallacious, stranding her in distant Ithaca, ny, faraway from her domestic laboratory. So she needs to look for relations during this unusual state of lonely humans, and regardless of what kings, monks, and students say approximately her, stick with it heeding the voices in her head.
But robust forces stalk Rosie. A excessive know-how company is desirous to get her again earlier than their competitors get an opportunity to review her. a central authority either threatened and tempted by way of the secrets and techniques she embodies wishes them to stick mystery - a method or one other. and a strong few who take prophesy very heavily are unwilling to allow Rosie’s model of God intrude with their implementation of the scriptures.
Rosetta’s allies are few. a fireplace investigator stumped via an 8 foot circle of glass burned into concrete, an unhappily retired workaholic, a Pakistani lady at the run from the Taliban, and a stressed collage professor are all attached by means of the woman. but if every one of them turns out not able to deal with their very own lives, how will they shrink excesses of technological know-how, faith, and politics- and shop a baby?
A sweeping narrative… Rosetta’s tale touches on an array of well timed issues, starting from Christian fundamentalism to genetic engineering to household terrorism…A compelling secret. – Kirkus Review
