How to Survive Myself?

Rosa van Dijk is a sensitive and insecure thirteen-year-old girl with a vivid imagination. She has a talent for drawing, likes to chat a lot with her friends on MSN and has a good sense of humour. She eventually has to move to another city, together with her eight-month old stepbrother and mother, to live with her new step-dad. Far away from her friends in a new environment, she struggles with her insecurity, her step-dad, and her alter ego Rooz. Whatever she tries, her problems seem to only grow bigger. How will she survive?
