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)
One of the best. It wasn't so fantastical that you knew you were listening to a fictional book. It's in the form of girl's journal of events. It seemed all too real at times.
It seems so real, like it could happen. I was outside shoveling snow as I listened to the first hour, and found myself getting depressed and scared... In a good way!
The British Accent! for an American anyway.
"Not your average dystopian"
"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.
