A wonderful story. It's Ray Bradbury's "All Summer in a Day."

  Sorry for the off-topic post, but I'll keep it short, and I know the
  rara-avians know all kinds of things. A friend who teaches adult
  literacy has asked me to identify a short story for her. She read it
  long ago and remembers little about it. She classified it as science
  fiction, and says it's about a planet where it practically never
  rains. A girl gets excited because it's about to rain, but is
  tormented by others for her excitement, eventually ending up locked in
  a closet (or something) and missing the whole thing.

  Ring any bells for anyone?

  And speaking of hard-boiled sci-fi (which I really wasn't, I know, but
  work with me here), I recently picked up the two Sam Space novels by
  Nolan. Anyone ever read these? Are they worth my time?
