Description of this Book

When the California drought escalates to catastrophic proportions, one teen is forced to make life and death decisions in this harrowing story of survival from New York Times bestselling author Neal Shusterman and Jarrod Shusterman. The drought - or the Tap-Out, as everyone calls it - has been going on for a while now. Everyone's lives have become an endless list of don'ts: don't water the lawn, don't fill up your pool, don't take long showers. Until the taps run dry. Suddenly, Alyssa's quiet suburban street spirals into a warzone of desperation; neighbours and families turned against each other on the hunt for water. And when her parents don't return and her life - and the life of her brother - is threatened, Alyssa has to make impossible choices if she's going to survive.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review No one does doom like Neal Shusterman (Thunderhead, 2018, etc.)-the breathtakingly jagged brink of apocalypse is only overshadowed by the sense that his dystopias lie just below the surface of readers' fragile reality, a few thoughtless actions away ... Mouths have never run so dry at the idea of thirst. * Kirkus Reviews * ... the palpable desperation that pervades the plot as it thunders toward the ending feels true, giving it a chilling air of inevitability. * Publishers Weekly, starred review *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
