I was drawn in by the title, cover design and especially the story line with "The Storm". I haven't actually read "The Rain" yet (it is sitting on my self to read next) so this was my first introduction to Ruby and the apocalyptic world she now lives in. This book could actually be a stand alone novel which is impressive in itself. The author did a wonderful job of getting into a young teen girls head and how she might think and react to a truly horrible situation. I found the book to be realistic, well written and very original. I can't wait to find out what her next book will be! I received a copy of this book for free from the publishers (thank you!) via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
