Happy Friday! Today I’m participating in a new meme that I first saw over at Alicia’s blog, A Kernel of Nonsense.

This weekly meme is hosted by Freda’s Voice, so feel free to join in! In anticipation of my review for Middle Grade Monday, I’ve decided to share a few quotes from the wonderful realistic novel, Rain Reign by Ann M. Martin. I’m excited to share my thoughts on this gem next week–it’s a beautiful story about the homonym-obssessed Rose, who just happens to have Asperger’s. But she also happens to own a wonderful dog called Rain. Tune in on Monday to find out more!

[From the beginning of the book]

“I will name her Rain,” I replied. “You found her in the rain, and rain has two homonyms–rain and reign–so it’s a special word.”

“You’re so lucky, Rose,” says Parvani.

Mrs. Kushel lets everyone visit with Rain for 3.5 more minutes before she says, “All right, class. It’s time to get to work. Say good-bye to Rain.”

  1. I read this one as an ARC a while ago and really enjoyed it. Thanks for reminding me about this one. I’ll have to add it to my Elementary book order. Happy reading!

Please share your thoughts!
