Description

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.

Review quote

"This book was so thought-provoking, it made me think a lot about what we currently value and the things we take for granted." * Bibliotales * "I thoroughly, thoroughly, thoroughly, enjoyed this book. It was captivating, it was honestly terrifying. [...] I loved this book so much, it was dark & shocking at times, it made me think deeply about our society's values and the current state of our world and I love that Neal is highlighting these issues in his books. He is slowly becoming one of my absolute favourite authors." * Bibliotales * "A pacy, gripping read which combines snarky teenage dialogue and concerns about friendship, family and the future with the heightened emotion of facing the apparent end of your world." * Press Association Syndicated Review * ... 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 * 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 *
