Apple and Rain is a heartwarming novel from the author of the Carnegie shortlisted book, The Weight of Water. I really enjoyed this novel.
In this novel many relationships are explored. Relationships involving parents, grandparents, siblings, friends and boys all have a place in this novel.
I especially loved the relationship between Apple and Rain. I enjoyed reading about how the relationship grew throughout the novel.
I really liked the character of Apple, because she has a clear and honest heart, even though she makes small mistakes. I loved how she matured throughout the book, and learned who and what really mattered to her.
Apple and Rain is a fantastic, heartbreaking story about unconditional love and the strength of a young girl willing to do whatever it takes to keep her family together. I definitely would recommend this book.
