Rosa Garduno Character Quiz

See past Character Quizzes >>

And the winner is NATALIE L.

I salute you all. Thanks for sending in so many fun entries! I received 33 entries! Out of those 33, an eleven got 100% (either all right or missing one but filling out the bonus question). Here is an interesting bit of trivia. Those who send in their answers really fast usually miss quite a few (somebody missed 13 out of the 20). However, those who wait a bit and study a bit usually get them all right or miss only 1 or 2. Just a word to the wise.

  1. Hope S.
  2. Kenzie
  3. Lizzy T.
  4. Chille Pod
  5. Ella Grace
  6. Sara M.
  7. Naomi F.
  8. Ruth F.
  9. Natalie L.
  10. Micaiah C.
  11. Jalaena E.

I will create another character quiz next month (April). Here are your choices. Vote in the comments.

*Bonus Question*

I have collected three wonderful “visions” for Rosa. All of them are awesome. So, which is the “real” Rosa in your eyes? #1 – Rosa from the cover of Price of Truth? #2 -Rosa from the Look-a-like contest Round One? or #3 – Rosa from the Look-a-like contest Round Two? I love them all!

Most people picked #1, the original cover picture. Yay! Since there is nothing I can do about it anyway.

I'm the main character in the Circle C Adventures series. I live on a huge cattle ranch in 1880s California. These are my adventures.

  1. Thanks for another fun Character Quiz Mrs. M!! I really hope you get enough entries this time so you can keep doing these!!!!!

    1. Copy that email and go to yours and hit ‘Compose’. You can paste it in the place where it asks for the email of the person, you’re sending it to. Write your answers in and send it. That’s how I do it. 🙂 Does that make sense?


    1. I dunno. Hardly any are coming in with right answers. Not sure why not unless fans are just guessing without taking the time to find the answers in the books. Only one entry even qualifies so far, and nobody has gotten 100 percent right yet


  2. Any hints on question 20? lol I just can’t find it! I have searched the book and I’m still not seeing it. LOL
    I have a good idea on what ranch they live at but I wanted to double check!


    1. In order to give a hint I would have to go back to the book myself and figure out what chapter the answer is in. Sorry, I just don’t have time to do that. Giving the book for each question is already a huge hint. 🙂

      1. Mrs. M, I have the original version and in Chapter seven when she pulls the photo out, she quickly stuffs it in her waistband and all Rosa says is “anything else?” That isn’t an option on question 6.
        Question 6. What does Rosa say when Andi finds a picture of her family in the saddlebags? (Long Ride Home)
        A. You have a large family!
        B. You have a nice family.
        C. You have a beautiful family.


      2. I have no more copies of the original Long Ride Home so I can’t check it for you. I just know it’s at the end of the chapter. I thought it was in both, but it’s been almost 20 years since I wrote the first version and I don’t have anything to check it. Here’s what you need to do. take a picture of that part of the chapter in the book and email it with your answers. I’ll count it no matter which answer you choose if the original truly doesn’t have Rosa’s response. Hope that helps!


  3. This one is hard!
    Why is Rosa nervous about going to school? (Dangerous Decision)
    A. She thinks the other students will make fun of her.
    B. She won’t be able to understand the teacher.
    C. She doesn’t think she is smart enough to learn anything.

    I found the chapter where is says it. All of them could be right…


    1. Sure, you can ask. But it doesn’t seem to be any one question. These are actually really easy questions because they are taken right out of the book. No trick questions (I don’t do trick questions). It’s meant to be so easy that if you read the book you can find the answers, especially when I give you the name of the book in which you can find the answer. The only thing that might be an issue is question 6. Some folks say they have the original Long Ride Home and none of the answers are in that chapter. I don’t know. I don’t have any copies of that book any longer so I can’t look it up.


    1. How so? Rosa is either older, younger, or the same age as Andi regardless of the books. Unless you can find specifically where I wrote it wrong and I switched ages around? If so, In which book?


  4. I’ve been re-reading the book where Rosa goes to school and I can not find it! (thinking face)
    I found a place where it says Andi is afraid that Rosa will get teased and Andi shouts ”unfair’.
    I found a place where Rosa is worried she won’t understand English.
    And I found a place where Andi tells Rose she is so smart and will catch up fast in her lessons.

    Maybe I’m just in the wrong chapter?
    I am totally clueless about which one it can be! lol


    1. I guess these quizzes are too hard and I should not do them anymore. I want them to be fun but so many ask so many questions that it’s taking so much work to try and answer them. 👀🤪


      1. I think everyone is extra nervous because you said earlier that a lot of people are missing questions, thus the overthinking.


      2. I surely hope you will keep doing these quizzes!!!! 😀
        Maybe every two or three months you could do one…! That would be better than none at all! 🙂
        They are a ton of fun!! 😀
