Waiting on Wednesday: The Rain

The Rain

One minute sixteen-year-old Ruby Morris is having her first proper snog with Caspar McCloud in a hot tub, and the next she’s being bundled inside the house, dripping wet, cold and in her underwear. Not cool. As she and Caspar shiver in the kitchen, it starts to rain. They turn on the radio to hear panicked voices – ‘It’s in the rain . . . it’s in the rain . . . ' That was two weeks ago, and now Ruby is totally alone. People weren’t prepared for the rain, got caught out in it, didn’t realize 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 knows she has to get to London to find her dad, but she just doesn’t know where to start . . . After rescuing all the neighbourhood dogs, Ruby sets off on a journey that will take her the length of the country – surviving in the only way she knows how.
My Thoughts: This sounds terrifying! I'm from the Pacific Northwest where it rains more days then it is sunny so my whole region wouldn't be able to survive something hidden in the rain. Despite my abstract terror I'm really excited for this one! "It's in the rain! It's in the rain!"


  1. Oh this sounds incredibly creepy. I love the rain...LOL. This might break my heart! :D

  2. Now this sounds like apocalypse. In a creepy way. Not my thing but my curiosity won so maybe I'd read this once out when I get a chance.

    Here's my Wednesday post.

  3. Holy crap on the creepiness! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Oh. She's definitely in the wrong country if she's got any hopes of avoiding the rain. Lol. Seriously though, this sounds awesome.

    Great pick!
