Leongatha Secondary College year 7 student Nickyta was drawn to Jane Godwin’s When Rain Turns To Snow. Her year level also studied Jane’s other novel, Falling From Grace as an English text. Our group of Shadow Judges were keen to read this new story.
Nickyta was particularly moved by an event in the novel from which it gained its name. She hopes you enjoy listening to her speak about When Rain Turns To Snow – it does include some spoilers.
When asked what she thought of the story, Nickyta said, “It was really good. I did find it hard at the start, wondering what was going to happen. I felt like the characters were real people going through some really hard, tough times. It explored lots of different issues. I really enjoyed it.”
