Cinnamon Rain

By Emma Cameron

When everything changes, can friendship survive? A powerful and authentic look at teen life from talented new author Emma Cameron.

Luke spends his days hanging out at the beach, working shifts at the local supermarket, and trying to stay out of trouble at school. His mate Bongo gets wasted, blocking out memories of the little brother social services took away and avoiding the stepdad who hits him. And Casey, the girl they both love, dreams of getting away and starting a new life in a place where she can be free. All of them are waiting for life to change. But when it does, will they be ready?

  • “Each character is beautifully rounded, their voices authentic and emotions cleverly revealed … With interesting plot, fully engaging dialogue and intriguing characters, this verse novel is highly recommended.” Reading Time magazine
  • “Cameron’s debut is a novel in verse, and each character gets a chance to tell part of the story … The struggle for the three teens to leave ‘this place,’ which is physically and spiritually different for each, is told with honesty and hope. The book is left open-ended, reinforcing the idea that – just like life – the story continues.” Booklist
  • “A trio of characters give their perspectives in this emotionally gripping Australian import … A smart and hopeful debut novel about the necessity of finding one’s own way.” Kirkus Reviews
