Apple and rain is a novel by Sarah Crossan is a MUST READ it is touching and heartwarming. It’s about a girl named Appolina(Apple for short) who’s mom left her at the age of 3. She then grows up with her nana, while her dad found a new woman. 11 years later her mom comes back but with an unpleasant surprise for Apple. This story is filled with friend drama, crushes, forgiveness, family and heartbreak. It has some mature content but nonetheless a great read. I recommend this book to middle schoolers who love realistic fiction or a rainy day book. You just can’t put it down.
