I really liked the writing style and the character's voices in Drops of Rain. It was easy to sit down, promise I'd read only 50 pages or one chapter and before I knew it an hour or two had passed and I was farther than I had thought I would be. Drops of Rain drew me in quickly, making me interested and pulling me in with little problem.
The plot line was great! It was hard to read but at the same time, it was dealing with issues that are difficult to deal with and so it should be hard to read. Or at least during those parts.
It was really easy to get attached to Ali and Drew. Both were just trying to find their way and discover who they were or find something better than what they had. It was a beautiful story and I think a lot of people can relate to the struggle of both at least partially.
Drops of Rain was a painful, emotional read but it was well worth it!
