Book Review


Rain knows the statistic: only one out of four marriages survives the death of a child. That’s why, when her mom announces they are moving from their house in Vermont to a tiny apartment in New York City, Rain says she’s okay with it. She knows fresh starts are good. But life in the big city is very different from what she’s used to, and her parents are reacting to grief in very different ways. As the one-year anniversary of her older brother’s death approaches, Rain tries to find a way to keep her parents together, all the while struggling to come to terms with her own grief and the secret she has buried deep inside.
