Rain Reign by Ann M. Martin

Book Summary(via Goodreads):

Rose Howard has 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. 

This insomniac's opinion: 

Am I the only one that has thrown away any and all ideas of categories that "good books" can be in? I am no longer confined only to the adult fiction section of the library and happily peruse the YA and, yes even Juv, sections. This novel is exactly the reason why. 

I was solidly in love with Rose from the very first chapter of this book and, as the book rolled on, became also entranced with Rose's dog, Rain, and her uncle. Also, I found that I rather adore homonyms, much like sweet, unique Rose herself. 

I highly recommend this to both children and their parents. 

Worth staying up all night to read?

Well, Bookish Buddies- the great news about plucking books from the Juvenile section is that they will only take a couple of hours to read(with the noted exception of the Harry Potter series).


5 stars(oh now I wish stars was a homonym.)
