KINDLE æ Right as Rain Þ Lindsey Stoddard

It’s been almost a year since Rain’s brother Guthrie died and her parents still don’t know it was all Rain’s fault In fact no one does Rain buried her secret deep no matter how heavy it weighs on her hea Right as Rain certainly packs a punch I would not recommend reading this book in public Not only will you be actually laughing out loud but also crying and sighing and a whole bunch of other things And non reader humans find it weird when you do that by yourself with just a book in front of you The main character in this book actually feels like a little girl without her being annoying She made a lot of decision that I know I would have made when I was her age The whole family felt entirely like real people trying to do their best I think this will be a great book for younger readers because it discusses serious topics without dumbing them down
