This book is perfect for fans of Sara Pennypacker, Lisa Graff, and Ann M. Martin. Ideal for ages 8-12.
More about RIGHT AS RAIN:
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 heart.
So when her mom suggests moving the family from Vermont to New York City, Rain agrees. But life in the big city is different. She's never seen so many people in one place--or felt more like an outsider.
With her parents fighting more than ever and the anniversary of Guthrie's death approaching, Rain is determined to keep her big secret close to her heart. But even she knows that when you bury things deep, they grow up twice as tall.
Readers will fall in love with the pluck and warmth of Stoddard's latest heroine and the strength that even a small heart can lend.
