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.
