    One thought on “Apple and Rain”

    1. See more reviews at YA Midnight ReadsI’ve read all of Sarah Crossan’s novels now, and in my opinion, Apple and Rain is her best work so far. This book is filled with emotions, and is bound to make anyone feel. A tale of coming of age, learning what real love is and different forms of love, Apple and Rain transcended my high expectations.On Christmas Eve eleven years ago, Apple’s mother left Apple. Apple has always hoped that one day, she would come back to save her from her overbearing Nan [...]

    2. I received this as a surprise ARC from Bloomsburywith tissues. Which is mildly concerning. Will I be reduced to a snivelling mess at the end? Will I sob my way through a packet of tissues asking why I was born to feel things and why must these books destroy my delicate emotions?Well, I didn't cry at all, actually. But this is by far the best ARC package I have ever received. Don't get me wrong: this book ignited all sorts of emotions inside me! I am not a heartless frog, I promise. I just didn't [...]

    3. This is a beautiful story about family, love, the bitter sweet things life has to offer and the value of hope.This being my first Sarah Crossan novel, I didn't have many ideas as to what to expect. However, this one time, I let my expectations reach a higher peak, and needless to say, Apple and Rain did not disappoint.I think we're all familiar with the concept that beauty is simplicity, and I certainly think that this book right here, fits the description perfectly. Apple and Rain does not have [...]

    4. This review appears on Happy Indulgence - check it out for more reviews! This is the first YA book that has literally taken me back to school – and not in a good way.Reading Apple & Rain feels like you’re back in English class again. From the class discussions, to the method of teaching, to their homework and what Apple writes as drafts, it’s all there. Yes I enjoyed the English subject back in the day – but I don’t want to relive it, much less read about it and in this much detail [...]

    5. I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley. This is no way impacted in my view.Apple and Rain tells the story of Apple, a 13 year old who wishes her mother would return home after more than ten years. When she finally does, it is not without its own problems, and Apple finally understands that you have to be careful what you wish for.Apple and Rain was such an unexpected read. Before diving into the book, I was a bit apprehensive, as I wasn't sure what I would think. I am [...]

    6. Full review can be found here Actual Rating: 2.4 stars.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. Towards the middle of the book, I came up with this:A Poor Piece ofLousyEnglish literatureAndReallyAstonishingly, IncontestablyNot as good as it could be.I'll stick to the second half of this because as I was reading it it seemed that Crossan had spent so much time trying to narrate like a 13 year old would, that she forgot to t [...]

    7. Even though this book was the complete opposite of what I thought it would be when I picked it up—I found myself completely unsurprised. I thought Apple and Rain was a YA Romance about a girl with abandonment issues, thanks to her mother. Apparently, the physical ARCs came with tissues. And tissues from the publisher can totally mean sad, broken girl with mommy issues, who meets an even sadder boy/girl with double the mommy issues, right?The story is quite simple. Appolinia Apostopoulou (Appl [...]

    8. Nachdem ich zuletzt innerhalb von zwei Tagen zwei Bücher von Sarah Crossan verschlungen habe, stand für mich schnell fest, dass ich auch unbedingt ihr neuestes Werk "Apple und Rain" lesen möchte. Meine Erwartungen an die Geschichten waren riesig und ich wurde zum Glück nicht enttäuscht.Sarah Crossan beweist hierbei wieder einmal, wie einfühlsam ihre Sprache doch ist. Oberflächlichkeiten sind hier Mangelware und die Geschichte liest sich trotz der doch ernsten Thematik leicht und flüssig, [...]

    9. A poignant and touching story, Apple and Rain is a story about family, poetry, wishes and growing up.Apple is thirteen and has lived with her grandmother since her mother left one Christmas Eve when she was two. Her Nan is loving but strict and Apple can't help but imagine that her mother will one day return and that her life with her will be all she has ever wished for. When Annie does suddenly reappear on a grey afternoon, she offers Apple her hearts desire, a home of their own, and with barel [...]

    10. 4 starsI’m not sure why this book was on my to-read list. On getting it out of the library, I had no memory of the premise. I think perhaps I just liked the cover (I know, I’m terrible, but it’s so pretty).Apple and Rain is shelved as YA but, not long into it, I discovered that the main character is 13. This worried me cause I’m 20 and I don’t really want to read books aimed at 13 year olds.I’m definitely glad I stuck with it.Although perhaps the intended target audience is younger t [...]

    11. Finished reading: March 29th 2016“Poetry can teach us about ourselves. It can comfort us when we are in despair. It can bring joy. But not only that can open us up. It can make our worlds bigger and brighter and clearer. It can *transform* us.”(view spoiler)[I read Sarah Crossan's One not that long ago and I was really impressed by both the prose (the whole book is written in verse) and the story itself. So when I was looking for something good after a few disappointing reads, I remembered [...]

    12. This review was originally published on Book Blog BirdApple And Rain is the story of Appolonia ‘Apple’ Apostolopolou, a thirteen year old girl who has lived with her nan ever since her mum walked out on them when Apple was three. Apple’s nan is fairly strict, she’s got a hopeless crush on an older boy at school and her best friend is starting to hang out with other people, and Apple is convinced that if her mum was still around, everything would be much better.The story itself is bitters [...]

    13. Apple and Rain is not the type of book I would normally pick up, simply because it's contemporary YA and I find a lot of those tend to be all about teen angst and high school, but one of my daughters read this and loved it and she asked me to read it, so I did. This is about a girl named Apple whose mother left when she was very young and doesn't come back for 11 years. Pretty much from the beginning of this book I was angry at Apple's mother and also her father (who has been in her life, but ne [...]

    14. ”If I wanted to make up memories, wouldn’t they be good ones? Wouldn’t all my childhood stories have happy endings?”DNF at 132.Hmm, I just think this book wasn’t for me. I truly did like the main character Apple with her sardonic remarks and plain-spoken way of thinking. However, I hated what her mother was probably going to put her and her sister through. The main problem I had with this book was the writing style. It was extremely monotonous and really had no distinct qualities to, a [...]

    15. LA DELICADEZA DE SER SENSIBLE. Terminé este libro hace tiempo y aún sigo con él en la cabeza. Es una de esas novelas especiales, que no son para todo el mundo, pero que te lleva los sentimientos de los personajes a la puerta de tu casa. Tierno por las protagonistas, triste por el olvido y tan poesia como el sonido de la lluvia. Precioso.

    16. Honestly, I didn't expect this book to be that good. I loved how it was told in the perspective of a 13 year-old and how realistic the whole situation was. This book focused mainly on family, relationships and emotions, in my opinion. I never regretted reading it.

    17. I liked Apple and Rain but I didn't find it very original. It seemed to me to be just another romance/family drama.

    18. "Apple y Rain es una historia muy dulce y real, una historia sencilla pero que sus personajes os conquistará por completo. Me encantaría leer más libros de la autora porque este libro os lo recomiendo sin lugar a dudas."Reseña completa: obsesionporlalectura

    19. I think that Apple and Rain was a great book and a complete page turner, it was sad at times but it all ended well. I look forward to reading more of Sarah Crossan's books.

    20. A copy of this novel was provided by Bloomsbury Australia for review.I read Apple and Rain in one sitting. It was incredibly addictive, and it drew me in from the first sentence.I must admit that I was expecting this book to be about a teenage girl going through a tough time who finds a boy who is also going through a tough time and then they bond and fall in love.If you think this is what the story of Apple and Rain is, you are mistaken. I most definitely was.Apple and Rain is the story of a th [...]

    21. divabooknerd/2014/09/aWhen a review copy arrives with included tissues, you know you're in for an emotional read and Apple and Rain didn't disappoint. Apple is an intelligent young lady, but she's never been able to overcome her mother leaving. Although she loves her grandmother dearly, she so desperately pines for a relationship with the woman who left and never looked back. It was only then did I realise how incredibly young Apple is emotionally, and that is also reflected in new sister Rain a [...]

    22. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.This review was originally posted on my blog, Daring Damsels.Apple and Rain wasn’t at all what I expected. Though, to be fair, I’m not exactly sure what I was expecting. All I know is, it wasn’t what I got. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, however.Our protagonist is Apple (short for Apollinia Apostolopoulou – what an awesome name?!): a 13-year-old girl who has been raised by her grandmother ever since her mothe [...]

    23. ‘Poetry can teach us about ourselves. It can comfort us when we are in despair. It can bring joy. It can open us up. It can make our lives bigger and brighter and clearer. It can transform us.’ This story was remarkably written, every sentence indescribably moving to the reader. The main character Apple enjoyed poetry and writing. She was not very popular in school and lacked confidence. When she is reunited with her mother who disappeared for eleven years everything changes. With the help o [...]

    24. I loved this book so much! I think I found a new favorite author! Apple was great, so was Rain and Nana and I really want a sequel set a few years after this one ends. I want to know how everything works out and if Jenny is still a big dealAAAH I NEED TO READ MORE BY SARAH CROSSAN!

    25. I liked the title.I empathized with the blurb. I read a few pages, and I didn't want to read more.But I read on, God, I'm glad I did.Realistic fiction, a break from fantasy!This story is my life manifest, in a twisted away. Sorta. Maybe not. I'd like to think it that way though.Let me begin with the rating, initially I was certain that it will not take more than 3 stars, what with the simple writing or the thirteen year old POV and self observation But damn, I'm giving it a five. Just because ri [...]
