It has been two weeks, and now Ruby is totally alone. People weren’t prepared for the rain, got caught out in it, didn’t realise that you couldn’t drink water from the taps either. Even a drip of rain would infect your blood and eat you from the inside out. Ruby sets off on a journey that will take her the length of the country - surviving in the only way she knows how.
"Distinctly British dystopian survival thriller. Great page turner, and I particularly enjoyed the very normal heroine." (The Bookseller)
"Tense, scary, and high emotion, The Rain will have you on the edge of your seat and afraid to step outside." (dark-readers.com)

Rain storms now scare me!
I love this story. Ruby is a typical obnoxious teenager. She is not really a likeable character, but by the end of the book I had grown to love her. Unlike many apocalypse stories, the characters in this story act like you would expect real people to act.
Avita has a really clear voice. She is very expressive.
Really hard to answer this without spoilers, but several parts of the book were moving, especially when some characters die.
A very butterfly good book. Very entertaining
There was never a dull moment, you just had to keep reading.
Yes, it was a long book but didn't seem like it.
It's an apocalyptic book from the view of a 15 year old girl, with teenage problems.
It's fun, sad, exciting & makes you think too.
