Rain Reign

9780312643003Rose lives with her dad and her dog, Rain, and goes to a school where no one is as interested in homonyms as she is. She also likes rules and prime numbers and Uncle Weldon, who drives her to school each day. Then the hurricane hits, Rain goes missing and her father loses his job. What I liked most about the book is the surprise of how Rose finds Rain, and what Rose learns about the dog she thought no one else wanted. The last half of the book proves to be a test of character for Rose, and inadvertently her father, with surprising results.

Ann Martin‘s Rain Reign is like  The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time for younger readers.
