Shouting at the Rain
Delsie lives with her grandmother on Cape Cod. When Delsie’s good friend Aimee is cast as Annie in the summer musical, she asks Delsie what it’s like to be an orphan, bringing up a lot of emotions. Delsie is also faced with a new girl in town stealing her best friend, who is mean to boot. There is also a new boy, Ronan, in town, brooding and angry. These characters, along with Grammy and the neighbors, help Delsie and Ronan as they grow, change, and come to grips with losses they have both suffered. It really does take a village.
Author Lynda Mullaly Hunt writes with such authenticity, readers are immediately immersed in Delsie’s small town on Cape Cod and feel every sharp barb that comes her way, and there are many. Hunt’s characters are fully developed and completely believable. Their problems are the kind people face every day, and it’s great to watch her characters navigate the shoals of teenage life. A new book by Hunt is cause for celebration, and this book, like her earlier One for the Murphy’s and Fish in a Tree, will stay with readers long after the last page is turned. Don’t miss it!
