Staff Reviews

Imagine: you turn your tap, and... nothing happens. Dry - no water. In fact, no water in the whole state of CA. How would you react? How would your neighbors? How long before civilized people go mad with thrist? Already optioned for a movie, this ultra-realistic disaster book should be the next Hunger Games - read this!

— Leah Moore

A what-if scenario becomes a real state-wide emergency of drastic and deadly proportions in this California drought story where all the taps have run dry and FEMA is busy with another disaster, leaving people to fend for themselves. A survival story examining human nature, and the feral parts of us that come out at the most desperate times so that we may stay alive. — Hanna Yost
