“It’s just a rite of passage,” our mothers told us. “You’ll be fine.” But we knew better. This was no rite of passage. This was serious business. This was Junior High.***Thirteen year-old Bitsy Barrett has a bad case of Junior High blues. From harboring an unrequited crush on the star of the baseball team to getting saddled with befriending the weird new kid in school and somehow finagling her way into a seemingly impossible semester project assigned by her most unreasonable English teacher, everything in Bitsy’s life is a bit of a mess.And it’s all about to get even more complicated, as Bitsy learns that her beloved older sister has a devastating secret – a secret that propels Bitsy and her best friend Jake into a cross-country quest for answers and, in the process, acquaints her with many colorful characters, each of whom offers some bit of wisdom based on his or her own unique life experiences.

Although it is a coming-of-age novel with a prominent quest/journey narrative, Praying for Rain is not moralistic, focusing more on Bitsy’s pursuit of knowledge than on any one lesson that she learns.The novel deals with serious thematics including death and loss- however, it is sprinkled with humor and infused with an overarching sense of hopefulness that will appeal to readers of any age, but particularly to its target audience of young adult readers.
