About the Author
Susan Krawitz is a freelance writer and editor. Viva, Rose! won the Sydney Taylor Manuscript Award for a middle grade novel. The story is partly based on her family's stories of a cousin who rode with Pancho Villa during the Mexican Revolution. She lives in New York.
"The tense atmosphere and exciting setting will ensnare readers' imaginations, while Rose's personal growth will strike a chord with those straddling the complex divide between child- and adulthood."--Booklist "Readers will enjoy Rose's fiery personality and equally brash narration in this engaging historical adventure."--Publishers Weekly "Krawitz has based her tale on family stories and infuses it with details of Villa's hideout and the lives of Jews in an atypical setting. Rose is a determined character who gains a more mature understanding of her family and faith, her fellow towns-people, and Villa through her adventure."--Kirkus Reviews
