Lit Bite: Dry

October 24, 2022

“When we’ve lost the strength to save ourselves, we somehow find the strength to save each other.” 

How long can you survive without water? When the drought becomes bad enough for the taps to run dry across Southern California, everyone scrambles to find water however they can.  Alyssa and her family hope that the government will step in and send aid.  Kelton’s family are preppers who have everything they need and more to survive this event.

When things spiral out of control, Alyssa and Kelton will have to do whatever it takes to survive. With a premise that is all too believable, Neal Shusterman asks us to consider what we would do when something we need for our very survival, that we take completely for granted, is suddenly gone. Will we share our resources or hoard them? Will the government help or hurt you? Your going to want a tall glass of ice water to drink as you read this book!
