We Call Her Rose (2023)


Collin is clever, calm, and kind; qualities that serve him well living under an oppressive regime. But after he meets Rose - the stunning symbol of the Utopian Shroud - he decides to fight for love while fighting for his life.

As Rose, Collin, and the Utopian Shroud try to stop the tyrannical rule of the Complot, Collin realizes there's more to romantically-ever-after than he thought. If he wants to hold the heart of Rose, Collin has to give up knowing the truth - because Rose's true identity must remain a secret for the Shroud to save Canuckia.

With a hint of horror alongside plausible parodies, You Know What I Think? leaves readers with more questions than answers.
