Newbery Medalist Karen Hesse recreates the body and soul-renewing experience of a summer downpour after a sweltering city heat wave.

Tess knows that the only thing that can fix the listless vines, the crackling dry path, the broiling alleyway and her sagging mama, is a good, soaking rainstorm. “Come on, rain!” she whispers into the endless summer heat. When it finally comes, there is shouting and dancing as everyone and everything spring to life.
