Rain is fourteen-year-old girl who had a best friend name Galen Owen. Galen and Rain promised each other to celebrate their birthdays for their life times. Tragically, Galen was killed by car accident on New Year’s Eve. Rain and Galen’s relationship was about to start get serious, but that stopped by Galen’s death. Rain shut down herself from the world. One day, Rain was hired as a photographer of camper in her aunt Georgia’s Indian camp that is on the controversy. Rain decides to fight against of the real world. 

Rain is not my Indian name is a book that has sympathy, recovery, and great humor. As seeing Rain’s process of recovering from the tragedy, this book gives encouragement to young readers. Has great diversity perspective. Controversy over aunt Georgia’s Indian camp shows how this world is still against of other world’s culture. I think this book encourage readers to have more open minded to other culture.
