ABOUT RIGHT AS RAIN:
They were a family of four
There was laughter and fun and stories around the dinner table
There was a two-story house and a big backyard and friends at school and a top spot on the track team
There’s quiet and closed doors and stillness
There’s Rain’s mom finding a new job in New York, and moving the family from small town Vermont to a big city.
Nothing feels quite right.
The one thing Rain can hold onto is running. Soon she’s running in a pair, and then in a trio, and then with a whole team. And maybe things won’t ever be the same, but maybe things will get back to a different kind of normal. And Rain’s okay with that.
This strikingly tender, ultimately hopeful novel about one family’s heartbreak and the compassion that carries them through is perfect for fans of Sara Pennypacker, Lisa Graff, and Ann M. Martin and cements Lindsey Stoddard’s place as a breakthrough talent.
PRAISE FOR RIGHT AS RAIN:
“Timely, well-integrated themes, a vibrant setting, and well-drawn, likable characters—the diversity’s unlabeled, but it’s there—make this a winner.”
