“Kissing the Rain” by Kevin Brooks

08 Aug

FROM A KINNELON LIBRARY TEEN REVIEWER:

Moo Nelson is an overweight teen. He is drenched in "rain" every day that consists of teasing, shoving, and name calling. However, there is not a way to umbrella these comments. To escape from the rain, Moo goes on the bridge, where he can finally be in peace away from everything.

Until the night Moo witnesses a car chase and a murder. Moo must choose between lying and telling the truth, and both options seem to end up hurting someone he loves.

"Kissing the Rain" was a little slow at first, but then got very intense and interesting. If you like Kevin Brooks' "Lucas," you will like this novel also.

    Kissing The Rain=Fantablous!

    This a great book! Moo/Michael is a normal kid who has to go through the troubles of being picked on. The book is in his point of view so teens can really relate to him. The suspense keeps you on the edge of you chair and the ending was amazing…

      Fantabulous, huh? Awesome! Kevin Brooks definitely has a lot of fans out there. Have you seen his new book, “Being”? It looks pretty interesting. Click here to find out more about “Being” in the MAIN library catalog. Thanks for your comment!

        Heh … it stinks when you land on a bad book. Believe me, I know. Here’s hoping that the books you encounter after this one will be much, much better for you!
