Is Brenna strong enough to survive losing both of her mothers?

While struggling with the death of her beloved adoptive mother, sixteen-year-old Brenna reconnects with members of her biological family, hoping to discover why her biological mother broke off contact many years earlier. At the same time, she is falling in love with Ryan, who provides support while she grieves but has to leave her when she needs him most. Despite powerful feelings of abandonment, Brenna realizes that getting strong physically and focusing on the needs of others might just help her move beyond her crippling grief, find peace and plan a future for herself.

Dancing in the Rain continues the story that began in Shelley Hrdlitschka’s bestselling Dancing Naked.

Shelley Hrdlitschka has written many novels for teens, including Sister Wife, which was nominated for a Governor General's Literary Award. She lives in North Vancouver, British Columbia, where she hikes, snowshoes and hangs out with grizzly bears at the Grouse Mountain Refuge for Endangered Wildlife.

"Explores realistic truth that not all relationships can be mended while also offering healing and hope." - Kirkus Reviews

"The present tense narration is refreshing and lends a sense of urgency to the plot...The characters including Naysa, Brenna and their father, Brett, are well conceived. A reader could easily see these characters as real people going through real events...Highly recommended." - CM Magazine
