Apple and Rain
About this deal
The Idea about "Parent" who abandoned their kids and being irresponsible story is unique but the story mostly just follow Apple and her daily life esp her school life (homeworks, class, assignments, friends ect ect) yes it was very realistic but its also boring New York Brooklyn Travel Print - Wall Art Featuring Iconic Landmarks of the Big Apple - Perfect for Home or Office Decor Whilst Apple and Rain was not a favourite of mine, I’m quite glad I read it because it’s a little different to the books I usually read, and it made me step outside of my reading comfort zone.

Sarah Crossan is Irish. She graduated with a degree in Philosophy and Literature before training as an English and Drama teacher at Cambridge University and worked to promote creative writing in schools before leaving teaching to write full time. La otra parte triste e inquietante de Apple & Rain fue sobre los problemas psicológicos de Rain y cómo trata a una muñeca como una persona real. Lleva a Jenny y la alimenta, le habla como a una niña de verdad y prácticamente se podían ver los efectos del abandono en Rain a los 10 años. Aparte de eso, también está el acoso y cómo Apple lo maneja en la escuela. ¿Hay algo de qué alegrarse en este libro?
The characters - Cyril, Anthea, Robert, Jane and Hilary (known as “The Lamb”) and the Psammead - first appeared in the book ‘Five Children and It’, written by E Nesbit in 1902. Five Children on the Western Front introduces the new character of Edith, known as ‘Edie’ and is set nine years after the original story.

That brings us, of course, to Rain. She’s 10 years old, making her only 3 years younger than Apple but she is far, far less mature and seems to be having some mental health issues. She carries around a doll names Jenny and treats it as much as she can like a real baby – feeding it milk, changing its nappies, starting to decide Jenny’s ill and insisting she must be taken to the doctor. This, of course, is all signs of Rain’s inability to cope, desperate need for some guidance by a less useless adult than her mother. Additionally, as it’s pointed out by another character, Rain’s insistence that Jenny be taken to the doctor as Rain’s way of admitting that she knows she needs to see a doctor.

Sämtliche Figuren sind dabei gut ausgearbeitet und besitzen eine gewisse Tiefe. Ich muss zwar sagen, dass besonders Apples Mutter nicht wirklich sympathisch war, ich sie aber dennoch in gewisser Art und Weise verstehen konnte. Am meisten habe ich jedoch Apple ins Herz geschlossen, denn diese war mir nicht nur sehr sympathisch, sondern ich konnte auch mit ihr mitfühlen und mich somit in sie hineinversetzen. Crossan’s skill as a writer is at its most pronounced, contributing to a portrayal of adolescence that is subtle and humane’ Irish Times Not all Apple Watch bands are appropriate for water use.

I'm not usually one to go in for decimalised rating, but I don't think it was as bad as two stars or as good as 3. Apple and Rain is a wonderful feel-good kind of book, the kind that doesn’t offer you an unrealistic happy ending, but rather an ending which leaves the reader full of hope. A wonderful book indeed’ www.librarymice.com
The author has made it more real by setting it in the Great War and having two of the children old enough to join the army and fight. All the children are involved as they are determined to keep the Psammead secret.
