Rain is a story about a girl who has grown up living in a bus. I always imagined the bus to look like this one, and not like the one on the book cover. I wrote the book because I knew lots of people in the 1970s who thought school was a bad idea. Then they had children and the children sometimes wanted to go to school. That’s the exact opposite of the way things usually are, with parents wanting their children to go to school and the children wishing they didn’t have to. Plenty of people still do teach their children at home. You can find out about that here: https://www.educationotherwise.org
