How far would you go to protect the ones you love?

Rain has taken care of Ethan all of their lives. Before she even knew what autism meant, she was her twin brother's connection to the world around him. Each day with Ethan is unvarying and predictable, and Rain takes comfort in being the one who holds their family together. It's nice to be needed—to be the center of someone's world. If only her longtime crush, Liam, would notice her too...

Then one night, her life is upended by a mistake she can't undo. Suddenly Rain's new romance begins to unravel along with her carefully constructed rules. Rain isn't used to asking for help—and certainly not from Ethan. But the brother she's always protected is the only one who can help her. And letting go of the past may be the only way for Rain to hold onto her relationships that matter most.

Praise For Rules of Rain

"The first-person narration punctuated by Rain's cooking-blog posts and Ethan's journal entries pulses with emotion as Rain tries to adjust to the changes in her life, and it crescendos to a frenetic cadence when her life itself is in danger... Refreshingly thoughtful character development in a familiar package." — Kirkus Reviews

"The characters feel well rounded and nuanced. Give this to teens who enjoy coming-of-age novels with sympathetic characters." — School Library Journal

"Compelling...a page-turning read you won’t want to put down." — RT Book Reviews

"Rain’s first-person narrative is cheerful and thoughtful, and the relationships among the characters are realistic and nicely drawn; no one is too perfect to be believed. The real truth is that sometimes even the best rules must be broken. " — Booklist
