The debut of an astonishing new literary talent, Rain proves that Gunn is already a master of her craft. Twelve-year-old Janey and her younger brother, Jim, spend summers at a lake with their parents. Ignored for long stretches and then called upon suddenly to mix drinks or receive drunken kisses, the children huddle together in tenderness, protecting each other from the unpredictable moods of the dark adult world that surrounds them.
