Scattered Showers : Nine Beautiful Short Stories


Rainbow Rowell


*Including a brand new introduction from Rainbow Rowell for 2024*

Rainbow Rowell has won fans all over the world by writing about love and life in a way that feels true. In her first short story collection Scattered Showers, she gives us nine irresistible love stories. Illustrated throughout by Jim Tierney.

Girl meets boy camping outside a movie theatre. Best friends debate the merits of high school dances. A prince romances a troll.

A girl romances an imaginary boy. And Simon Snow himself returns for a holiday adventure. It?s a feast of irresistible characters, hilarious dialogue, and masterful storytelling, in short, everything you?d expect from a Rainbow Rowell book.

“I ended up taking risks in Scattered Showers that I might not have taken in a novel,
and I played with ideas I’ve had for a long time (like little melodies I’ve had stuck in my head). My literary agent has always wanted me to write more about his favorite of my characters, Reagan, from Fangirl. So I gave Reagan her own story. And then I wrote two more stories about characters from older books. It was like visiting old friends.
The title compares short stories to rainfall. I was thinking about how you can walk into
a cloudburst, and the whole world changes color—and then a few minutes later, you can walk right out of it into the sun. I like the rain, so this is a pleasant association for me.”  – Rainbow Rowell
