Ann M. Martin, Rain Reign

Wednesday, January 17, 2018 - 4:00pm

Bookshop Santa Cruz welcomes New York Times bestselling, Newbery Honor author Ann M. Martin and her new novel Rain, Reign, the story of a girl who's on the autism spectrum, and the dog she loves. Join us for this book talk and signing.

Rose Howard has OCD, Asperger's syndrome, and an obsession with homonyms (even her name is a homonym). She gave her dog, Rain, a name with two homonyms (Reign, Rein), which, according to Rose's rules of homonyms, is very special. Rain was a lost dog Rose's father brought home. Rose and Rain are practically inseparable. And they are often home alone, as Rose's father spends most evenings at a bar and doesn't have much patience for his special-needs daughter.

Just as a storm hits town, Rain goes missing. Rose's father shouldn't have let Rain out. Now Rose has to find her dog, even if it means leaving her routines and safe places to search. Rose will find Rain, but so will Rain's original owners.

Hearts will break and spirits will soar for this powerful story, brilliantly told from Rose's point of view.

Ann M. Martin is the author of Ten Rules for Living with My SisterTen Good and Bad Things About My LifeEverything for a Dog, and Missy Piggle-Wiggle and the Whatever Cure. She won a Newbery Honor Award for A Corner of the Universe, and is the author of the beloved Baby-Sitters Club series. She lives in upstate New York.
