Summary

Three months after the killer rain first fell, Ruby is beginning to realise that she cannot survive alone. When a chance encounter lands her back in the army camp, Ruby thinks she is safe.

But being safe has a price, and if Ruby wants to stay she must keep her eyes - and her mouth - shut.

Critic reviews

"A gripping title with moments of surreal humour and great tenderness - not to mention dread as the raindrops fall." ( Bookseller)

Make a 3rd book

I loved the books and audibles, would love a 3rd book to see how they are and what happened next as I feel another story could finish it off my curiosity.

You will think twice about going out in the rain!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I really love the concept of this story. What would you do if you could not touch water again? All water has been infected and is now deadly. You can't wash yourself or your clothes, you can't drink the water, and you can't go outside most of the time in case you get wet. Reading this book made me realise how much I take clean water for granted.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I really didn't want to stop listening to this story. Once I started listening I was desperate to know what happened to Ruby and her friends.

Any additional comments?

Even though this book is written for teenagers, I really enjoyed it (and I am in my 30's). I would recommend it to everyone.
