Inside Rain by Monique Mensah

Title: Inside Rain

Author: Monique Mensah

Headline: Slow Moving

“Inside Rain” by Monique Mensah takes us deep into the mind of spoken word artist, Rain. Rain is under the care of her grandmother because as a child she witnessed the brutal murder of her mother. Danny and Carmen are Rain’s siblings and they hold a grudge since she seems to be their grandmother’s favorite.

“Inside Rain” is a slow moving book until a man that Carmen begins to date seems familiar to Rain.  Mensah spends the majority of the book developing each character and it reaches the point where the storyline is quite predictable. It was a struggle to get there but “Inside Rain” was saved by Mensah’s unpredictable ending.
