Book Overview

From the author of the New York Times bestseller Fish in a Tree comes a compelling story about perspective and learning to love the family you have.

Delsie loves tracking the weather--lately, though, it seems the squalls are in her own life. She's always lived with her kindhearted Grammy, but now she's looking at their life with new eyes and wishing she could have a regular family. Delsie observes other changes in the air, too--the most painful being a friend who's outgrown her. Luckily, she has neighbors with strong shoulders to support her, and Ronan, a new friend who is caring and courageous but also troubled by the losses he's endured. As Ronan and Delsie traipse around Cape Cod on their adventures, they both learn what it means to be angry versus sad, broken versus whole, and abandoned versus loved. And that, together, they can weather any storm.

Write Review
This book is a good choice for a 4 th graders to possibly 7 th graders. I liked this easy read for something to not think about in depth. I would consider this a summer read if you have time to read. The book took me a couple of days to read. I enjoy Hunts use of dialogue and character development. I began to wonder if Delsie even breathed after reading the whole book. The third to last chapter seemed to be a great place to end the book, but it kept going for three more chapters. One chapter could have been summed up. I became bored and wondered when the book would end as it dragged on and on, the last three chapters were repetative, over analyzed, and Pollyanna views of lessons. If an elementary child learns a life lesson from it, then it's worth the read, repeatatives and all.
   Hunt Woes me Again!
Wow, that's amazing! Hunt has written another great book. Fish in a Tree is one of the books that I am fond of. Delsie is an orphan who lives in the Cape. She starts the summer off with her friend, Brandy, but suddenly she becomes close to a girl named Tressa. Brandy and Delsie's relationship is a cause for jealousy by Tressa. She starts to torment Delsie, but what will happen when he gets in the picture. Hunt writes a great book for children.
   Wonderful book to teach social awareness
There are compelling stories that can be told to raise social awareness using kid- friendly language. Many children and adults will relate to this story about a young girl struggling with friends and family. It is a great opportunity for those who don't relate to it to understand. I always look forward to reading more Hunt books.
   Filled with lessons
Hunt is very fond of young readers in this book. Kids who feel left behind by friends, parents, or others will relate to this story because it reminds readers to see the love that's right in front of them.
   Beautiful story about friendship and loss
Shouting at the Rain by is a must read for middle grade readers. Readers will easily connect with the characters because they are real. After Delsie and Ronan broke my heart, they put it back together again. While on the Cape, reading this book made the experience even better.
   A book that will build empathy and broaden perspective in kids AND adults!
Shouting at the Rain is very touching. Most kids can relate to the issues in the book wanting a normal family, being rejected by friends, blue collar life, grief, abandonment, neighbors who are family, mean kids, anger, finding your " herd," unexpected friends, standing up for yourself. Delanie and her family made me laugh, cry, and cheer for her. Esme has a strong shoulder, Henry has wise words, andGrampian has a lot of love. 5 stars and all the love for their book.
   A book for anyone longing to connect, and find out where they belong.
Delsie is being raised by her grandmother. She can't help but wonder why she doesn't have traditional parents. Her life feels like one of the storms she likes to track as her friend group changes. Ronan is an unexpected ally who has been through a lot. They connect over shared experiences of loss and feel like they don't belong. When Delsie is rejected by her former best friend, it hurts, and her sadness and anger is visible. You can see where he's coming from when he acts out. Readers will connect with these characters as they learn resilience, and rediscover the love and support that already exists in their lives. It's a beautiful and meaningful story that's relevant in today's stressed out world.
   Heartwarming Middle Grade!
There is a story about a young girl who lives on Cape Cod and her summer of discovery. She has to learn to deal with broken friends, the truth about her mother, and what it means to be part of an untraditional family. Hunt writes with honesty, humor and heart. She knows how to put on a page what it's like to be in middle school. The reader is left feeling hopeful. The sun is always in the sky. Her third book is sure to be a hit with readers everywhere.
