Be sure to pair and share The Schoolboy with the junior golfer in your house. The game of golf is full of surprises, but do not worry. We will not spoil the ending of this terrific novel.” -GOLFChicago Magazine“That most primal of ordeals—a lousy round of golf—imparts life lessons to a callow adolescent in this winsome coming-of-age fable…A fresh, subtle take on timeless verities for young readers.” -Kirkus Discoveries “Rosa incorporates some wonderful moral lessons in this easy to read, fast paced story that would encourage even reluctant readers to join Sam Parma in a game of golf. I hope to see more of Sam’s adventures from this talented first time author.” -MyShelf “I like the book for its creative plot twists and its unique style of writing…All in all, as the book takes you through Sam’s triumph and conflicts, you, too learn more about yourself…a good read for anyone, especially those who like golf and sports in general.” -Reader Views“A lifetime of moral lessons becomes emphatically clear as Sam discovers that the fears and challenges he faces during the tournament become important steppingstones to his future…The author’s unique style will make any reader want to turn the pages.” -Armchair Interviews“I don’t want to give too much away, but a nice message is well woven into this book: step up to challenges, they’re part of life, and it’s better to learn from them than to let them corner you.” -Young Adults (& Kids) Books Central “Rosa’s description of the tournament action among the four players shows either how autobiographical this book really is, or that Rosa’s had years of experience watching junior tournaments…For the young golfers reading it, they’ll be reassured to learn that they’re not so different from their peers. For older readers, they may experience a sometimes-wincing remembrance of their own past, tinged with occasional fondness.” -Cape Gazette“A second chance can often come in the strangest of packages. “Birdie” is a story following troubled youth Mark Crowe as he is faced with the hefty reality of adulthood after teenage years spent on the fringe. His renewal of life seems to come on the greens, with a vision-impaired golfer who may guide Mark to the rest of his life. “Birdie” is a fine read, not to be overlooked.” -Midwest Book Review"Birdie is a story following troubled youth Mark Crowe as he is faced with the hefty reality of adulthood after teenage years spent on the fringe.

He creates characters that encounter reality on the links, not a ghostly sage...Birdie is a real life struggle for two generations trying to connect. Golf proves to be the catalyst for change." -GOLFChicago Magazine...
