    Many authors try to write teen fiction, digging back into their memory banks to recall what it was really like back then, or watching teens around them for clues, then scratching their heads because the world is actually so very different. This novel is out of an alternative box. The teen perspective is shot through every sentence, every thought and every description with amazing alacrity. There is a promising innocence about this storyline and the way that it has been executed.

This novel is out of an alternative box. The teen perspective is shot through every sentence, every thought and every description with amazing alacrity. There is a promising innocence about this storyline and the way that it has been executed. I did not anticipate the ending until it was upon me and then I understood the risk the author took with it. Rain, the main character is initially irritating and yes, I wanted to slap her into reality. I was always going to be on the side of the parent because that’s my perspective. But I think that was the skill of the author in that she was meant to make me react, in the same way my own teens do. She got under my skin with her self-pity exactly as she was supposed to do. Had I been a teenager, I would have gone along applauding her risk taking and thrill seeking crying ‘Yeah’, but only up until the moment when her lessons became uncomfortable and a bit close to home. Rain’s diary entries were inspired, watching her grow and change and find her level. It obliges as a clever thread throughout the book, reaching the full impact at the end when we realise the function it serves. There is a lot of good morality tucked away in the folds of the novel and great lessons about kindness and loyalty. The descriptions of drug taking were frighteningly real, drawing the reader into every parents’ worse nightmare. That world has not been painted as anything other than it is, which is refreshing in a teen novel, which would usually set out to show our young that all the adults suck, don’t know what they’re talking about and just want to spoil their fun. Not so with this one. I thought it was a great novel and I enjoyed it.

    Rain is a runaway who doesn't know the cost of a stamp, nor that rape is rife in alleys in the city. She's lived such a sheltered, pampered life that she sees her parents imposing fairly normal rules on her as unbearably restrictive and meaning that they no longer love her. Goth has constructed a spoilt teenage girl who I can't stand. Oh, she's a very well-written character - and her story has an ending that seemed inevitable to me at the beginning. Goth did set up the rest of the story well eno Rain is a runaway who doesn't know the cost of a stamp, nor that rape is rife in alleys in the city.

Goth has constructed a spoilt teenage girl who I can't stand. Oh, she's a very well-written character - and her story has an ending that seemed inevitable to me at the beginning. Goth did set up the rest of the story well enough that I wondered if it would play out as I expected, though...and that was nicely done. For characterisation and story, I'd give the author four stars. Her drug-induced hallucinations are beautifully described. What I found jarring in this story is its need for an editor and a proofreader, as some sections are unnecessarily repetitive and some word use and sentence structure simply doesn't make sense. I'll give an example of two such spots in the book: "I will keep that under all my possible consideration," Vin said, obviously condescending his employee. and The memory played on, but she stayed solid, quaint with merging into the quiet loneliness of her room. Once minor issues like this are fixed, I can easily recommend this as clean, teen fiction.

    Mitch Goth is an excellent writer and this is an enjoyable crime novel. 'Delicate Rain' charts the ill-fated exploits of a young teenage girl who runs away from her comfortable yet cloying home to take up with a bunch of drug-pushers.

Rain is a sympathetic and well rounded character, and the narrative is both fluent and engaging. I'd read more from Goth and am glad to have stumbled upon this title. Definitely recommended.

    Alright, as always let’s get the boring stuff out of the way…the writing was good. I spotted no errors; everything was presented to us clearer than a sunny day. So, if anybody else is complaining about grammar they’re just being overly picky. As for the plot, Rain runs away, joins a gang and even though she stressed once that she didn’t want to join a gang…she ends up getting pretty deep into the lifestyle…and I mean very deep.

I spotted no errors; everything was presented to us clearer than a sunny day. So, if anybody else is complaining about grammar they’re just being overly picky. As for the plot, Rain runs away, joins a gang and even though she stressed once that she didn’t want to join a gang…she ends up getting pretty deep into the lifestyle…and I mean very deep. I think the biggest challenge for this story will be finding the right audience; to me honestly, it was a young adult novel but with cuss words and drugs…aka nothing foreign to the young adults of today. As a book for adults, I don’t think it would work. For experienced adult readers or TV viewers, we’ve seen this plot before in gangster films, Lifetime movies or novels. That’s why I feel it has to be aimed at readers just entering the world of storytelling between the ages of 14-18. Yes, I know the adult content will probably have parents in an uproar, but Rain’s story is very true to reality for a lot of teenagers who run away and get into trouble. Overall, it was a quick read and nothing made me want to claw my eyes out.

Now seventeen years old and facing banishment by her parents to a girls' academy to "straighten her out," she hits the road. As a runaway, the weakest of the herd in her designer clothing, she meets Ben, who saves her from a fate worse than death. A drug dealer, Ben thinks Rain looks young, sweet, and innocent. He finds it hard to believe the trouble she's brewed up around herself. According to Rain: "But the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist." As a member of Ben's group of miscreants, Rain lives a life without inhibitions, rules, or punishments. Rain's new life includes her role as a lab rat, her reaction to violence from a meth-head biker gang, and her job selling the new orange drug: Delicate Rain. Delicate Rain has flashes of insight, a good twist on educated criminals, and a good plot which holds the reader's attention.

    A delinquent teen and a gang of thugs. Not your best connection, but one that Rain Philipa enjoyed while she could, having runaway from home after her parents were forced to show tough love. Saved by one of the thug members, she soon became immersed in their lifestyle. The teen-aged angst was shown well, though it was hard to care for the characters until much later in the story. The ends found their way to being tied up in a way that worked. It took a while for me to get through the book, some A delinquent teen and a gang of thugs.

All-in-all, as a YA thriller, I can see how some teens may get quite tuned in to this tale.

    This book was free, so I won't critique too harshly. I wasn't overly impressed. While the plot moved at a good pace and Goth managed to integrate the back stories of the main characters and keep the action going, he should have done some basic research on drugs, drug dealers, the language of drug dealers, gunshot wounds, etc. This book was free, so I won't critique too harshly.
