About the Book: 

When the California drought escalates to catastrophic proportions, one teen is forced to make life and death decisions for her family 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; neighbors 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.

Why I’m dying to read this:

Apparently at one point I knew this was a thing… and promptly forgot.  THEN, Goodreads sent me this email telling me there was a Goodreads Giveaway for this book and my whole world lit up!  I had no idea that Neal had another book coming out, and so soon!
Yes, I call him Neal, because we’re best friends only he doesn’t know it yet.
I can’t wait for my best friend’s new book!

About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.

      1. Oh, that does sound like a great experience – I’ll add it to the list. 🙂 I love books that go beyond expectation like that. NaDTD was a beautifully written (and gut-wrenching) book that’s still one of my YA favs.
