Shouting at the Rain
Lynda Mullaly Hunt, the author of One for the Murphys and Fish in a Tree, has a new book out this week! You know it makes me want to SHOUT, kick my heels up and SHOUT, throw my hands up and SHOUT, throw my head back and SHOUT! Come on, now. Don't you recognize the lyrics to the iconic Isley Brothers song? It's the ultimate song of celebration, and this is something worth celebrating.
Shouting at the Rain (May 7, 2019)
Delsie loves tracking the weather–lately, though, it seems the squalls are in her own life. She’s always lived with her kindhearted Grammy, but now she’s looking at their life with new eyes and wishing she could have a “regular family.” Delsie observes other changes in the air, too–the most painful being a friend who’s outgrown her. Luckily, she has neighbors with strong shoulders to support her, and Ronan, a new friend who is caring and courageous but also troubled by the losses he’s endured. As Ronan and Delsie traipse around Cape Cod on their adventures, they both learn what it means to be angry versus sad, broken versus whole, and abandoned versus loved. And that, together, they can weather any storm.
