Apple and Rain by Sarah Crossan
Apple and Rain
This is a story with a lot of first times. Apple gets more independence, experiences love, loneliness and along with her new responsibilities has to grow up too fast. I enjoyed the story but didn't love it because I felt it was too familiar to me. My favorite part of the story was the connections and relationships that are built between Apple and other characters. The characters are what really makes this story, very memorable and overall heartwarming.
