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.

        So far it is totally awesome! I don't see why all the kids think she's weird. I even started saying homophones! I don't like her father at all. Her uncles is an alright guy though. I'm a little more than half way done. The author did an amazing job writing this book.

              The book is fine for for a fifth grader, it will make them think and not skim over words.

                What I thought of it: Well I really wasn't expecting it to be that great. And I was right. It wasn't extremely interesting. Also, her dad seemed unrealistically insensitive. I mean if he knows his daughter is sick, then he should understand why she behaves the way she does, and not have unrealistic expectations for her. Not to mention the fact that he had anger issues. Overall, it was disappointing.
