A lovely and enjoyable book that can be appreciated by younger and older reader.
I liked the well written and fleshed out characters, I laughed out loud more than once, and the plot kept me hooked till the last page.
A very good book, highly recommended!

This novel is a wonderful and exciting debut from author, Andy Donaldson!
The plot was intriguing and exciting and very well paced with no slow parts and I particularly liked the author’s portrayal of the characters. The interaction between the three school-friends, twelve-year-old Stanley Rain, Chloe Scott and Billy Bathurst was a delight. Also worth a mention was the way in which Sidney Rain, (Stanley’s dad,) Bobby Bathurst (father of Billy) and Terry Funk bonded when they all found themselves in the same situation as one another.
As well as being rich in wit and humour, “Rain Town” highlights some important issues for the reader about communication, morals and friendship in the modern world.
I wholeheartedly recommend this novel to both adults and older children and I hope to read more of Andy Donaldson’s novels in the future.
