Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

A vivid portrait of a girl with a hyperactive mind

Rainy isn’t thrilled about going to camp, away from her family and her beloved dog, Max. Without her family there to help, how will she stay focused when her thoughts start bouncing around her brain like ping-pong balls?

Once Rainy finds friends who can handle her extreme energy, she decides that camp is great. She’s even gotten good at keeping track of her things. But when bad news from home floods her head with too many thoughts, she forgets the rules and sets off on a dangerous journey.

With her signature mix of humor and heart, Sis Deans explores the hectic world of a girl learning to live with ADHD.
