The Colors of Rain by Abigail Hayven
Evan made a deathbed promise to his dad to hold their family together and lead them well. In the face of challenges on every side, Evan neglects his studies, and to make up his grade, he must write the story of the girl in his class who always has a palm-sized masterpiece painted on her left hand.
Rain has lived in Ivy Hollow nearly her entire life. The circumstances of her story have never been easy to come to terms with, but they’ve never been a secret… until now. Her senior year brings two new students to her small-town school, and both turn out to be a threat to the life she’s created for herself. Her long buried past is being exposed all over again, and she’s terrified of facing it.
Jordan doesn’t want anything to do with Ivy Hollow, but her mom’s new business has them living there anyway. While she’s unpacking boxes, Jordan discovers a dark family secret that will shatter every conception she’s ever had—and it just might have something to do with the girl at school who has a unique name and only one hand.
Three stories. One small town. Once they collide, life will never be the same.
