Summary by: Abbey Dreier
This book is about a girl with highly functioning autism. She likes homonyms,numbers,and rules. In the beginning of the book her father was out drinking and brought her home a stray dog. She named it Rain because it has a homonym,reign. Every day she had a routine,she would come home do homework than walk Rain and feed her. A few months after she got Rain there was a really bad storm. Rose's (the girl) dad let the dog out during the storm without her collar. Because of that she lost Rain and was quite lonely. She kept making calls to shelters everywhere,but no one has Rain. Than one day she called one of the shelters again and they had her. The next day Rose and her Uncle Weldon went to Happy Tails,but they found out Rain belongs to someone else. They temporarily got Rain until they found the previous owners. Sadly they found the owners and had to give her back to them. I rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars because it interest me and that is not easy to do since I am not into book
Highly Functioning Autism: is a term applied to people with autism who are deemed to be cognitively "higher functioning" (with an IQ of greater than 70) than other people with autism.
