Chuva Braba (the English title is Wild Rain) is a short novel with an interesting take on daily life in Cape Verde. The story is about a boy, Mané Quim, who lives in a small agricultural community on one of the Cape Verde islands. The island is plagued by drought which threatens to harm the crops. When Mané Quim's godfather offers to take him to Brazil, he has to choose between staying with his family in poverty or starting a new life in a country that he doesn't know.
