Rain Reign

Ann M. Martin. Feiwel & Friends.

Gr 4-6–Literal-minded Rose finds joy in discovering homophones (words that sound the same but have different meanings). Diagnosed with Asperger’s, Rose struggles when rules are broken, making her an outcast in school and straining the tenuous relationship with her impatient and verbally abusive father. A surprising bond with a stray dog and the loving support of her Uncle Weldon help Rose discover hidden strengths. Readers will root for this seemingly unlikely hero.
