With a job as a camp counselor, sixteen-year-old Nina heads to the wilderness for summer break. With her year all she wants is an escape. But some special kids can hear her thoughts and she can't hide her head in the sand like she planned. Can Nina come to terms with all her swirling emotions? Sometimes all it takes is a drop of sunshine!
Drops of Sunshine by author Tricia Copeland moved me. Nina went away to work at a camp that cares for special needs children. She thought this would help her to get away from her problems and the heartache she was experiencing. Pretty normal story, but the beauty of it is that these "special" children were gifted in a way that was unexpected and gave me chills. They could see and feel the emotions and struggles that Nina had been trying to hide. From the quiet Lily who called her by her childhood nickname to the brother of one of the counselors that could see the visions of her fear. I was just mesmerized by the authors ability to draw me in and raise the hairs on the back of my neck. Extraordinary!
