A New York Times Bestseller!

Rose Howard is obsessed with homonyms. She's thrilled that her own name is a homonym, and she purposely gave her dog Rain a name with two homonyms (Reign, Rein), which, according to Rose's rules of homonyms, is very special. Not everyone understands Rose's obsessions, her rules, and the other things that make her different – not her teachers, not other kids, and not her single father.

When a storm hits their rural town, rivers overflow, the roads are flooded, and 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.

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

    I read this book a while ago but fell in love with it! The reading level is about 3-5 and the count of pages is 34, 901. I would recommend this book! WARNING! SPOILER ALERT! This book is about a girl named Rose Howard. The character loves homonyms. A homonym is each of two or more words having the same spelling or pronunciation but different meanings and origins. For example, ¨Bye¨ can also be spelled like this ¨Buy, or ¨By¨. Each word means something different but the have the same pronunciation. The title and her name is a homonyms. She is does not have many good relationships, not her father, teacher or kids in her class. No one understands her or sees her in the way she does. She finds this dog named, Rain (homonym is Reign). One day a huge thunderstorm hits her town. Places begin to flood and Rain shows up missing! Rain has a phobia of thunder, lightning and storms. Can Rose find her dog? Is it too late? This book will break your heart and mend it back together. I assure you, you will be frantically be flipping through pages just to figure out what happens next. Read this book by Ann M. Martin and make sure to read more of her novels! -ShootingStars

      I honestly thought this book had a terrible ending. But the rest was very powerful and made me think.

                      This book is about an autistic girl who loves homonyms and prime numbers. Rain Reign is a great book. I love it.
