is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
This week's teaser comes from H2O by Virginia Bergin. I can't tell you how excited I am for this book. I've been dying to read it since it was originally released last year as The Rain by Panmacmillian. Can I just mention this cover? A book about acid rain, and there are acid rain drops burning through the cover to the words? Clearly I need this in hardcover.
“The car stalled about a hundred times just getting to the end of our road. If that man had come after us, he could have walked, slowly, and still caught up.”
Synopsis of H2O:
It's in the rain...and just one drop will kill you.
They don't believe it at first. Crowded in Zach's kitchen, Ruby and the rest of the partygoers laugh at Zach's parents' frenzied push to get them all inside as it starts to drizzle. But then the radio comes on with the warning, "It's in the rain! It's fatal, it's contagious, and there's no cure."
Two weeks later, Ruby is alone. Anyone who's been touched by rain or washed their hands with tap water is dead. The only drinkable water is quickly running out. Ruby's only chance for survival is a treacherous hike across the country to find her father-if he's even still alive.
