Product description

Way too close for comfort (ouch). The scariest thing that could happen? You turn on the tap. Nothing comes out. Thirst. You can’t think. You can’t fight. You can’t live. When it comes down to it, water is way more precious than diamonds. But Alyssa never thought it would happen to her. The California drought – or Tap-Out – is pretty normal, right? Don’t fill up your pool. Don’t water the lawn. Don’t take long showers. People know the rules. Until the taps run dry. Now the rulebook is getting torn up. Alyssa’s quiet street is about to become a warzone of thirst, and she must do whatever it takes to survive.

  • A harrowing tale of catastrophe based on an all-too-real scenario
  • Inspired by California’s ongoing struggles with drought and wildfires
  • Neal Shusterman is the New York Times bestselling author of Scythe
  • His other books include the Unwind series and Challenger Deep

*Please note this book contains mature content and language more suitable for older readers.
