Apple and Rain by Sarah Crossan
This is on I borrowed from my ebook Library. I liked the simple cover and the refreshing title but didn’t really know what it was about. I was guessing love story, but that was more or less wrong (though there was a little bit of love). Mostly it’s about Apple finding her place in the world when her Mom returns after abandoning her as a child.
I really liked this book. I thought the character of Apple was well done, and that of the Mother and Rain. I did think that the Grandmother could have been given a bit more motivation. But overall, a caring and heartwarming coming of age story. Beautifully written and very entertaining. The main character is only 14, so it falls into a bit of a lower age category, but I think any teen would really enjoy living through this characters struggle with self.
4/5 Stars (I really need to come up with some cool pictures for my rating system).
