By Mullaly Hunt, Lynda
From the New York Times bestselling author of Fish in a Tree, the moving story of a girl learning to appreciate the beauty of her nontraditional family Delsie has lived with her Grammy for as long as she can remember. But this summer Delsie feels like she's looking at their life ...with new eyes, and is questioning why she doesn't have a cool mom and a loving dad to live with, like most of her friends. And while she loves her grandmother, it's often hard to move her off the couch of their Cape Cod home, where she spends hours watching her beloved game shows. Delsie is a keen observer of the weather and notices other changes in the air, too--the most painful being a summer friend who seems to have outgrown her. Fortunately, though, Delsie has fabulous neighbors who are like family--and a special new friend--to help her realize she can weather pretty much any storm that comes her way. In the vein of her classic middle-grade novels One for the Murphys and the New York Times bestseller Fish in a Tree, Hunt brings us an accessible, tender and nuanced story about learning to love the family you have. This is a lesson we all have to learn, and Delsie begins to when she gains new understanding of the strengths of her funny, loving grandmother, of whom Delsie says: Grammy starts to cry and I squeeze her real tight realizing that I had been shouting at the rain all this time even while I stood in the sunshine. Shouting at the Rain has Lynda's trademark characters and is every bit as strong, touching and compelling as Fish in a Tree!Read more
