Deskripsi

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 best-selling 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.

    I loved the full cast narrative . This is one of them stories that you find entertaining, yet has you shaking your head because the whole thing seems so far fetched. its mainly about a group of kids trying to survive a water outage "the Tap out" I couldn't help but keep thinking ummm you can do a million things for water including leave Calif lol. it's a good book deff worth a read and would probably be even more entertaining to pre-teens.

    Amazing full cast narration and a great story of survival.

    I gave this book 3.5 stars.
    Dry is a dystopian book about California City running out of water. We follow a group of characters and how they live the situation and all the things they do to survive.
    I felt a little weird while reading this since honestly what will we do if we run out of water? And it made me think of all of the times we simply waste it, just because its there and we dont think it will ever not be, but what if? so the book is full of this what ifs and what people will be willing to do in order to get some to survive. To be honest, I wont say I was surprised by the characters actions, I think its totally possible humans will do what was described on the book and it made me scared, but it also made me consider what things we can do to never be on that place for real.

    Going back to the book, there are some things I didn´t quite liked, the end seemed a little bit rush, from one moment to the other the situation was over and everybody was trying to cope with their actions, if the book was going to be about running out of water I would have loved to see more awareness on the issue. Another thing was that I could not really connect with most of the characters and their ends felt incomplete for me.

    I heard the audiobook version and it was a great narration with many characters, so I would recommend going with that format, and also, keep a glass of water with you, because you will be thirsty...

    Post apocalyptic with the usual tropes, though with a bit more attention to detail and minutiae. Wildly unlikely.

    Very realistic post-apocalyptic scenario. Loved it. Hard to put down.

    I liked how Jaqui ended up becoming someone more and henry being a liar.
  • (5/5)
    Okay, the narration was absolutely amazing.
    Oh man okay so I have issues with the story but with an ending like that, it’s so hArd to rate this below a 5 stars.
    I did love this book, but the characters oh man oh man. I had mixed feelings, like, one was incredibly annoying, but in all honesty, it kind of made them feel real. Although I couldn’t stand it whenever that person talked, the other characters really carried the weight of the annoying one. These characters feel raw and the voices behind them felt so real. I constantly felt as though I was there and it frightened me a bit. I can’t look at water the same anymore lol
    I’m general, I enjoyed this book even if it had its few problems and even if I couldn’t stand one character.
    The end tho. Oh man the end. It’s a beautiful story with a beautiful message, but if you’re reading something as to find out what would happen if the water went out, this is definitely to the extreme. But still, a super good story!
    I enjoyed this book and I think it’s worth pushing through that one character. :)

    Brutal real und verstörend echt! Sehr Empfehlenswert und hoffentlich ein Weckruf.

    Can not understand. I can't understand why this book did not get better reviews than I expected. I loved this book, and being a fan since Challenger Deep, these two writers have done nothing but enlighten and entertained my classes and myself. I loved this and and recommend for any YA reader!

    So unbelievably addicting! I’m glad I read it through.

    I was nearly in tears at the ending- over the course of the story I grew to love all of the characters an incredible amount (excluding our resident Bad Guy, of course, but he was written so well and so despicably I hate him an extreme amount). Also, the authors got the setting completely right, as someone who lives in California. Well, ignoring the terrifying bits with the Tap-Out and such.
