First Rain is the eighth book in the All About Us series by Maryam Wells, which was published by Xilbris Publishing.

Alicia is featured on the book cover.


Alicia is excited because her old boyfriend from middle school, Marco, is coming to town, but's she's also worried because she doesn't have a plan for what they will do. The other girls assure her they will help her arrange for a good time in the city. Alicia gives her classmate Ryan some tips on how to approach Isabel, a girl he's interested in. In return, he tells her that he will help with the preparations for her big date. The four girlfriends and Sean go to check out a hip boutique, and while there Alicia and Ryan discover they have a lot of the same likes in common; more, in fact, than she shares with Drew. At her home the other girls prepare Alicia by getting her dressed and providing dinner, but then a call comes from Drew saying his flight is cancelled because of the rain. Alicia is not only disappointed, she sees no rain outside and doubts Marco's excuse. At her request the girls leave Alicia alone. The doorbell rings and it's Sean. He tells her that Isabel stood him up. They both decide to have dinner together and enjoy themselves talking afterward. Sean notices that snow is falling, the first Alicia's ever seen, so Marco's excuse must have been true. As they watch the rain, Ryan and Alicia are about to kiss when Ryan receives a page. It's Isabel, saying she was delayed and is ready to meet him. After Ryan leaves, Alicia watches the rain by herself and obviously has a lot to think about, including her feelings for Ryan.


  • Alicia and Ryan have their first relationship.
