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.

    Rain Reign is a really good book. It has a lot of great details and action. I was able to visualize what happened at almost every part in the book. It was sad at some points, but it got better as it went on. In this book, you will learn that the main character it strong, brave and determined to make people's life great.

                    One of my all time favorites! This book has so many powerful messages and we LOVE documenting all of the homonyms that Rose finds throughout her journey called life.
