Rain Rising

Written by Courtne Comrie

I loved everything about this book. The raw emotions, the feeling of not being good enough. It was written perfectly. The author made you cry with Rain and then cheered her on. I think what I loved most about it was the lack of fear writing about not liking the color of your skin. I am light skinned and have struggled with not being dark enough or light enough, just somewhere in between. I loved that Rain struggled with being too dark because it made me feel seen even if we have the opposite problems. I also loved how dad issues were brought in. I just really resonated with Rain and her struggles. This book was heartfelt and I am going to recommend it to every person I come in contact with!
