Rain Reign

About the Book

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 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.
