Ronan is a bit of a bad egg at first glance but Delsie soon comes to discover that he has many layers, some being good ones. So, with her new ally, Delsie and Ronan take on the summer together, and discover what it takes to make a family.
This is the kind of book that is just full of so many little treasures it’s hard to keep track. It’s touching, it’s sweet, and it makes you really think about how you look at the world. It’s a lighter read that captures your heart and shows us that being abandoned or broken doesn’t have to stop you from being who you are. A treat for anyone who loves tender stories full of hope and wisdom. Shouting at the rain is a true piece of art.
