    This was like 50% enjoyable and 50% I sort of wanted to eat a brick wall. It was just frustrating and while I think a lot of the story meant to be that way (hey every plot needs tension!) I ended up feeling really ticked off. And a bit insulted at how it treated autism. But HEY. Rain i...

    I?ve been given an ARC by Sourcebooks Fire via NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion. 4,5 to 5 stars When I read Sourcebooks Fire Editorial Manager Annette Pollert Morgan?s note it said: ?At Sourcebooks, we talk a lot about how books change lives. (?) We are pass...

    Read this review and many others at: 5171 Miles Book Blog. Many thanks to Netgalley and SourceBooks for the chance to read and review this novel. Leah Scheier's upcoming release Rules of Rain explores family relationships in one of the most interesting ways I've experienced as a ...

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ahem. I mean...Rules of Rain is this perfect little book that I flew through in a matter of 2 hours, had my interest from the 1 st page, and has all the FEELS, SQUEALS, and meals. Because Rain is a cook and has a blog! HELLO to relatable. Look I bake rarely, but ...

    I love the books Sourcebooks Fire releases, and this time wasn't so different. I fell in love with the story in the beginning and I suspect I won't forget it so easily. But there were some flaws that got in the way a bit too much. So 3.5 but rounding down to 3. This is the self-disc...

    I've fallen into a bit of a reviewing slump so apologies that this review is very subpar and scarce. Although, truthfully I don't have an awful lot of thoughts about Rules of Rain. The most occurring thought was simply: meh? While I loved the parts where Rain shared all her little f...

    I received a electronic copy of Rules of Rain from SOURCEBOOKS Fire through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I really wanted to like Rules of Rain by Leah Scheier... I really did, but I couldn't. This book nearly put me into a reading slump after I set it down. Over...

    Rain...(that's a beautiful name) takes care of her autistic twin brother, Ethan (such a sweet character). Their parents are divorced and they live with their mother. Rain's friend Hope likes Ethan. Rain has a crush on Liam. They finally start dating each other. And Ethan and Hope also...

    Rules of Rain is the story of Rain and Ethan. They are twins but Ethan has austism and Rain is his voice/rock. This is a beautiful book about siblings, love, understanding and growth and I think the author did a fantastic job. Rain is our main character. She runs a foodie blog and s...

    I loved this YA novel about twins, Rain and Ethan and their quirky family life. Rain has always taken care of Ethan who has autism and has been bullied enough that he is now home-schooled. When Rain's best friend, Hope declares her crush on Ethan, Rain know she must work even harder to...

    If I was able to give this book more than 5 stars, there still wouldn't be enough stars to give this book!!! ...

    I give this book a 3.5. I liked it, and I enjoyed it, but I didn?t completely connect with them. Not sure why, I just didn?t. I liked rain and her brother, and appreciated that brother sister relationship. But I didn?t like the end at all, I feel like after the party I disliked i...

    I was expecting this to be a story about Rain and her relationship with her brother, Ethan, who is autistic, but it was so much more. This is a story about friendship, love and support. It is about the way we act to protect those we love. It is about the bad choices that teenagers some...

    I really loved Leah's previous novel, Your Voice Is All I hear. Her writing and ability to pull me into her story motivated me to read her latest, Rules of Rain. Sadly, this novel didn't captivate me as much as the last, but it was still an interesting story nevertheless. I liked th...

    UGH so many feelings!! This was almost everything I wanted. This was one of my most anticipated reads of 2017. The synopsis automatically made me think, (view spoiler)["TEEN PREGNANCY!", (hide spoiler)] which for some reason excites me. I think the subject is my guilty pleasure haha. ...

    What can I say about this novel? There were parts that I really loved and enjoyed, and then there were sections that irritated the crap out of me and for the life of me, didn?t make sense. Rules of Rain did have a lot of things happening inside its pages though. The character of ...

    I?ve been given an ARC of this book in exchange of my honest review. The story begins with Rain's posts on her blog and then you get a glimpse of Ethan's world by his journal. The beginning is like any other a slow burn so you can get to know your characters and their personalitie...

    Warnings: ableism, major character in medical distress, violence, bullying Since the blurb is pretty much self-explanatory, I'll jump right to it. This is a story about a neurotypical girl having an autistic brother and how her life is set by rules that she creates in order to care...

    3.5 stars I had some mixed feelings about this book. "Rules of Rain" follows Rain and her autistic twin brother, Ethan, through a tumultuous time. The twins have lived with their mother for several years after their parents' divorce when they were young. Their parents do not get alo...

    This is the first book by Leah Scheier that I?ve read, but it won?t be the last. In fact, I?m going to have to get my hands on her previous novel, because I enjoyed this one a lot. Rain has always taken care of her autistic twin, Ethan, helping him navigate the world when he n...

    Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks for an ARC of "Rules of Rain!" Summary: Sixteen year old Rain has always taken care of her family, especially her twin brother, Ethan, who has Autism. She has very specific rules for Ethan and very specific ways of comforting him during his dar...

    *I received this copy from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* I loved this story and found that I really connected with Rain. I know what it is like to feel like someone depends on you and then how it is difficult to cope with them not needing you anymore....

    (Disclaimer: I couldn't make it through this whole book. I did a bad book thing and skipped ahead because I was tired of what I'll explain below.) Two stars is a tad gracious for this book. If I could give it one and a half stars I would. Yes, it had good attributes to it, but the bad...

    4.5 stars. Rules of Rain by Leah Scheier is a heartwarming and poignant young adult novel. Rain Rosenblatt has always protected and taken care of her twin brother, Ethan, who is autistic. Now sixteen, both siblings find romance which unexpectedly throws their relationship into ...

    I really liked Ethan and his story, but kinda hated Rain a lot of times. It's hard because I understand her, I get why she acts like she does. The way Ethan avances and changes so suddenly in front of her eyes, how he suddenly doesnt need her the same way he did before. It must be hard...

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The connection between twins can be unique. Add into the mix one twin has autism, and the dynamics are even more complicated. Rain's entire life has revolved around her brother and...

    This is a great study of family relationships, particularly involving an autistic child/sibling. Rain and her twin, Ethan (who is autistic), have a relationship more entwined than most twins, as she feels responsible for taking care of him, even now that they are teens. She has found i...

    I enjoyed this book for the most part. There were a lot of aspects that I found very real and intriguing. The dynamics of the twins relationship and Rain's perception of her role in life is well written. This book made me feel a lot of emotions ranging from anxiety, conflict, happiness...

    Rules of Rain is the story of Rain and Ethan. They are twins but Ethan has austism and Rain is his voice/rock. This is a beautiful book about siblings, love, understanding and growth and I think the author did a fantastic job. Rain is our main character. She runs a foodie blog and s...

    I loved this YA novel about twins, Rain and Ethan and their quirky family life. Rain has always taken care of Ethan who has autism and has been bullied enough that he is now home-schooled. When Rain's best friend, Hope declares her crush on Ethan, Rain know she must work even harder to...

    I give this book a 3.5. I liked it, and I enjoyed it, but I didn?t completely connect with them. Not sure why, I just didn?t. I liked rain and her brother, and appreciated that brother sister relationship. But I didn?t like the end at all, I feel like after the party I disliked i...

    I was expecting this to be a story about Rain and her relationship with her brother, Ethan, who is autistic, but it was so much more. This is a story about friendship, love and support. It is about the way we act to protect those we love. It is about the bad choices that teenagers some...

    I really loved Leah's previous novel, Your Voice Is All I hear. Her writing and ability to pull me into her story motivated me to read her latest, Rules of Rain. Sadly, this novel didn't captivate me as much as the last, but it was still an interesting story nevertheless. I liked th...

    UGH so many feelings!! This was almost everything I wanted. This was one of my most anticipated reads of 2017. The synopsis automatically made me think, (view spoiler)["TEEN PREGNANCY!", (hide spoiler)] which for some reason excites me. I think the subject is my guilty pleasure haha. ...

    What can I say about this novel? There were parts that I really loved and enjoyed, and then there were sections that irritated the crap out of me and for the life of me, didn?t make sense. Rules of Rain did have a lot of things happening inside its pages though. The character of ...

    I?ve been given an ARC of this book in exchange of my honest review. The story begins with Rain's posts on her blog and then you get a glimpse of Ethan's world by his journal. The beginning is like any other a slow burn so you can get to know your characters and their personalitie...

    Warnings: ableism, major character in medical distress, violence, bullying Since the blurb is pretty much self-explanatory, I'll jump right to it. This is a story about a neurotypical girl having an autistic brother and how her life is set by rules that she creates in order to care...

    3.5 stars I had some mixed feelings about this book. "Rules of Rain" follows Rain and her autistic twin brother, Ethan, through a tumultuous time. The twins have lived with their mother for several years after their parents' divorce when they were young. Their parents do not get alo...

    This is the first book by Leah Scheier that I?ve read, but it won?t be the last. In fact, I?m going to have to get my hands on her previous novel, because I enjoyed this one a lot. Rain has always taken care of her autistic twin, Ethan, helping him navigate the world when he n...

    *I received this copy from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* I loved this story and found that I really connected with Rain. I know what it is like to feel like someone depends on you and then how it is difficult to cope with them not needing you anymore....

    (Disclaimer: I couldn't make it through this whole book. I did a bad book thing and skipped ahead because I was tired of what I'll explain below.) Two stars is a tad gracious for this book. If I could give it one and a half stars I would. Yes, it had good attributes to it, but the bad...

    4.5 stars. Rules of Rain by Leah Scheier is a heartwarming and poignant young adult novel. Rain Rosenblatt has always protected and taken care of her twin brother, Ethan, who is autistic. Now sixteen, both siblings find romance which unexpectedly throws their relationship into ...

    I really liked Ethan and his story, but kinda hated Rain a lot of times. It's hard because I understand her, I get why she acts like she does. The way Ethan avances and changes so suddenly in front of her eyes, how he suddenly doesnt need her the same way he did before. It must be hard...

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The connection between twins can be unique. Add into the mix one twin has autism, and the dynamics are even more complicated. Rain's entire life has revolved around her brother and...

    This is a great study of family relationships, particularly involving an autistic child/sibling. Rain and her twin, Ethan (who is autistic), have a relationship more entwined than most twins, as she feels responsible for taking care of him, even now that they are teens. She has found i...

    I loved this YA novel about twins, Rain and Ethan and their quirky family life. Rain has always taken care of Ethan who has autism and has been bullied enough that he is now home-schooled. When Rain's best friend, Hope declares her crush on Ethan, Rain know she must work even harder to...

    I give this book a 3.5. I liked it, and I enjoyed it, but I didn?t completely connect with them. Not sure why, I just didn?t. I liked rain and her brother, and appreciated that brother sister relationship. But I didn?t like the end at all, I feel like after the party I disliked i...

    I was expecting this to be a story about Rain and her relationship with her brother, Ethan, who is autistic, but it was so much more. This is a story about friendship, love and support. It is about the way we act to protect those we love. It is about the bad choices that teenagers some...

    I really loved Leah's previous novel, Your Voice Is All I hear. Her writing and ability to pull me into her story motivated me to read her latest, Rules of Rain. Sadly, this novel didn't captivate me as much as the last, but it was still an interesting story nevertheless. I liked th...

    I?ve been given an ARC of this book in exchange of my honest review. The story begins with Rain's posts on her blog and then you get a glimpse of Ethan's world by his journal. The beginning is like any other a slow burn so you can get to know your characters and their personalitie...

    I loved this YA novel about twins, Rain and Ethan and their quirky family life. Rain has always taken care of Ethan who has autism and has been bullied enough that he is now home-schooled. When Rain's best friend, Hope declares her crush on Ethan, Rain know she must work even harder to...

    I give this book a 3.5. I liked it, and I enjoyed it, but I didn?t completely connect with them. Not sure why, I just didn?t. I liked rain and her brother, and appreciated that brother sister relationship. But I didn?t like the end at all, I feel like after the party I disliked i...

    I was expecting this to be a story about Rain and her relationship with her brother, Ethan, who is autistic, but it was so much more. This is a story about friendship, love and support. It is about the way we act to protect those we love. It is about the bad choices that teenagers some...

    I really loved Leah's previous novel, Your Voice Is All I hear. Her writing and ability to pull me into her story motivated me to read her latest, Rules of Rain. Sadly, this novel didn't captivate me as much as the last, but it was still an interesting story nevertheless. I liked th...

    UGH so many feelings!! This was almost everything I wanted. This was one of my most anticipated reads of 2017. The synopsis automatically made me think, (view spoiler)["TEEN PREGNANCY!", (hide spoiler)] which for some reason excites me. I think the subject is my guilty pleasure haha. ...

    What can I say about this novel? There were parts that I really loved and enjoyed, and then there were sections that irritated the crap out of me and for the life of me, didn?t make sense. Rules of Rain did have a lot of things happening inside its pages though. The character of ...

    I?ve been given an ARC of this book in exchange of my honest review. The story begins with Rain's posts on her blog and then you get a glimpse of Ethan's world by his journal. The beginning is like any other a slow burn so you can get to know your characters and their personalitie...

    Warnings: ableism, major character in medical distress, violence, bullying Since the blurb is pretty much self-explanatory, I'll jump right to it. This is a story about a neurotypical girl having an autistic brother and how her life is set by rules that she creates in order to care...

    3.5 stars I had some mixed feelings about this book. "Rules of Rain" follows Rain and her autistic twin brother, Ethan, through a tumultuous time. The twins have lived with their mother for several years after their parents' divorce when they were young. Their parents do not get alo...

    This is the first book by Leah Scheier that I?ve read, but it won?t be the last. In fact, I?m going to have to get my hands on her previous novel, because I enjoyed this one a lot. Rain has always taken care of her autistic twin, Ethan, helping him navigate the world when he n...

    Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks for an ARC of "Rules of Rain!" Summary: Sixteen year old Rain has always taken care of her family, especially her twin brother, Ethan, who has Autism. She has very specific rules for Ethan and very specific ways of comforting him during his dar...

    *I received this copy from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* I loved this story and found that I really connected with Rain. I know what it is like to feel like someone depends on you and then how it is difficult to cope with them not needing you anymore....

    (Disclaimer: I couldn't make it through this whole book. I did a bad book thing and skipped ahead because I was tired of what I'll explain below.) Two stars is a tad gracious for this book. If I could give it one and a half stars I would. Yes, it had good attributes to it, but the bad...

    4.5 stars. Rules of Rain by Leah Scheier is a heartwarming and poignant young adult novel. Rain Rosenblatt has always protected and taken care of her twin brother, Ethan, who is autistic. Now sixteen, both siblings find romance which unexpectedly throws their relationship into ...

    I really liked Ethan and his story, but kinda hated Rain a lot of times. It's hard because I understand her, I get why she acts like she does. The way Ethan avances and changes so suddenly in front of her eyes, how he suddenly doesnt need her the same way he did before. It must be hard...
