Synopsis

Rain by Paul May

'They're not going to like me whatever I do ...' Rain has always lived on the road with her artist mum, Max, in their colourful old bus. She's never been that bothered about fitting in, or about finding the dad she's never known. All that changes when their bus breaks down, they put down roots for the first time - and Rain gets to go to school at last! But Rain hadn't reckoned on having to deal with the way kids at school treat anyone who is different. Will her friendship with fellow outsider Daniel be enough to help her stick at it?

Bravely confronting difficult emotions head-on, May provides an engrossing story throughout. Ages 11+ (Kirkus UK)'
