The Boy Who Loved Rain, by Gerard Kelly

I recently finished this book and I loved it. I would describe it as a continuous roller-coaster ride with the way Kelly kept the action going; slowing down only to take a breath. The story surrounds a preteen boy who is slowly being swallowed by depression and that one nightmare that has him screaming into the night. What in his past could cause such a tragic turn of events for a child who was adopted into a loving religious home? Can the love of a desperate mother willing to seek help outside of her husband's church be enough?
(I also loved the title's play on words, but you will have to read the book to understand.)
