DOWNLOAD Dancing in the Rain î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Heir families see that when life brings showers of sadness it’s okay to dance in the rainSet against the dazzling beauty of the Dominican Republic Dancing in the Rain explores the impact of the tragic fall of the Twin Towers on two Caribbean families It is a lyrical well crafted tale about finding joy in the face of lossDancing in the Rain won a Burt Award for Caribbean Literature 2015 pri. I d like to Thank Netgallery for providing me with a digital copy of this book in exchange for a honest ReviewI m going to start by saying that I really liked this book and would greatly recommend it to anyone I believe that this book is truly underrated and not well known enough Dancing in the Rain is such a diverse read and also perfect for many age groups It can be understood and read by children because it s an easy read but it s also something Young adults like me would enjoy for its meaning This book was so heartbreaking tragic and cute at the same time a truly captivating mix Dancing in the rain is about two families torn apart by the collapse of the World Trade center at September 11th 2001 First off we have Elizabeth a twelve year old girl She lives in the Dominican Republic with her mother Mami and the half sister of her mother in a big green house neat the sea Her father works in New York in one of the towers as a waiter I really liked Elizabeth she had such a rich imagination full of mermaids dreams and other wonderful things She also had such a bubbly happy air around her and was a true sweetheart She always misses her father dearly especially since her relationship with her mother is not the best I personally liked seeing the completely of the relationship with her Mami because mostly even though they love each other it seems like her mother cares about her husband and is always very down when he s not there She s only happy when he s here and is mostly very harsh towards her daughter and makes her feel left out The only time she really says I love you to Elizabeth is whenever her father comes home which is not very often I really felt for the girl because she grows up with that kind of sorrow especially later when her mother blames her for her father s death and falls apart Elizabeth doesn t have anyone to grief with and I think that it s a horrible thing of a mother to blame something like this on her daughter when it has been a terrorist attack not related to Elizabeth at all Yeah this really made me feel sick with hate for Mami of course she was grieving but trying to blame it on Liz was just plain cruel and false The novel however shows very well how much 911 drags Mami down and everyone around with her The second family that is affected is Brandt s family He s only eight years old and lives with his brother and mother in New York Her mother is a lawyer and works in an office in one of the two buildings She survives the attack but is never the same because of the things that she s seen and the friends that she s lost Mommy which is how Brandt calls her lives in constant fear and memory of what happened and decides do leave New York behind to go to her birthplace the Dominican Republic She also did know Elizabeth s father and has family of her own back there Mommy s situation is different from Mami s in terms that she was in the attack herself and survived it but maybe only with her body and not her mind There s also the dynamic in the family itself because Brandt is Mommy s favorite child because he s so easy going and a good boy while she finds Jared too complicated It was heartbreaking to see how she always scolded him and preferred her other boy Jared was of a person with walls around himself to protect himself and noticed so many things when people usually thought that he didn t notice Mommy also always blamed him to being too complicated and wanted to fix him while she was unable to see that it wasn t Jared s fault but her lack of understanding for him as well Brandt personally liked his brother a great deal and considered him to be a very important part of his life I really liked the boy because he was so caring and also liked to look up words in his dictionary so that he could understand what everyone meant What I found very astonishing was how the events of 911 and all the depression and sorrow and grief that happened afterwards was shown through the eyes of two children It puts the tragic in another perspective and shows how children experienced it not known what was going on especially in Brandt s case He was so young and so confused It was heartbreaking how he didn t know what was happening because he was so young and unassuming However everything that happened made him seem older because he was confronted with all that sadness very early in his life especially seeing his mother suffer so much and wanting nothing than to help her This is when he meets Elizabeth and becomes best friends with her Both want their mothers to be happy again and try to cheer them up I liked heir friendship a great deal it was so heartfelt and real Elizabeth finally had someone to help through this hard time and she also made friends with Brandt s older brother Jared and felt at home their grandfather s house I think they gave so such to one another and made everything bearable by sticking together and supporting each other since they were in a very similar situation In general the book was so great because it explained many important topics so well that even children can understand them The story is short the writing very light and easy to read so that the novel is suitable for a wide variety of people Dancing in the Rain talks not only about tragedy but also about how to live with it for the rest of your life and still try to find the courage to build a new life and try to be happy again It talks about how it s okay to be happy in all the sadness and how you are not responsible for someone elses happiness Just by trying to be happy yourself you can cheer people up and give them new hope That was a very important lesson for Liz and Brandt In the end nether of the two children are responsible for the mothers happiness or have to fix them but manage to cheer them up by being happy themselves The novel also talks about how important family is and that you can love someone but not understand them that you can love someone but are hurt by them Not to mention that it also underlines that there s your blood family and the family you choose and that the greatest gift is when you find someone that fits both Promise Me Tomorrow underrated and not well known enough Dancing in the Rain is such a diverse read and also perfect for many age groups It can be Irresistible Intruder understood and read by children because it s an easy read but

DOWNLOAD Dancing in the Rain î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB He meets her kindred spirit in 8 year old Brandt and his 13 year old brother JaredBrandt and Jared two boys as different as Oreo and milk and just as inseparable arrive on the island to escape the mushroom of sorrow that bloomed above their lives in the wake of the tragedy Elizabeth shows them a new way to look at the world and they help her to laugh again But can Elizabeth and Brandt help t. I received a free copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis book deals with the aftermath that the 911 terror attacks leave on two Dominican families We follow both Elizabeth and Brandt in a dual POV both of whom lose their fathers in the devastating tragedy Set in the Dominican Republic we see how these losses affect both families and how they come together to overcome what they ve been throughI really enjoyed this book Given the age of the protagonists Elizabeth should be around 12 Brandt is 8 I would classify this as a Middle Grade book and I m glad someone approaches a topic like this for children because even if they maybe aren t affected by 911 itself there have been many other devastating terror attacks around the world and maybe a book like this can help children deal with possible losses I really liked that the book didn t try to put the blame on anyone It really isn t at all about who is responsible it is literally only about how the families lives are affected and how the children have to deal with it while their mothers also have a very hard time coping I really enjoyed this book overall although I would have liked for it to delve a bit deeper at some points I would definitely recommend this book though It comes out today July 15 2016
