Just One Drop Will Kill You...

Hey there people of the internet! Today, I thought I thought I would talk to you about a book I recently read and enjoyed sooooo much that I read in a day and a half. 

The book is called 'THE RAIN' by Virginia Bergin. 

It's about a girl called Ruby and her story of what happened when the deadly, dreaded rain came. At the beginning of the book, she is living the life; partying with her mates and she also now has a dream boyfriend but just as soon as things look like they are great, the worst comes instantly! She's at a party with all of her mates including her boyfriend when immediately, her friends parent's are rushing everyone into the house panicking about how it will soon start raining. At first they think it's a joke, I mean the worst the rain can do is soak you...right? WRONG. This time the rain is so bad, you won't know what hit you. As she and Caspar (a.ka. the boyfriend) shiver in the kitchen of her mates house, it starts to rain. They turn on the radio to hear panicked voices – ‘It’s in the rain . . . it’s in the rain . . . ' 
Nobody was prepared for what was about to happen. At first, people didn't think; they 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. Read the book to find out more!

I thought this book had a very gripping plot with very interesting and exciting characters. There are things that come as the biggest shocks ever. There is a lot of mystery in the book and among all the different characters, there is a lot of trust put in each other. There is even a bit of romance. There are times in this book where I wanted to cry because of how sad it was but there were also times when I was like cheering, I guess for the characters. I would definitely read this book, I absolutely loved it!

I can't wait for the sequel to this book; 'THE STORM' to come out, I am super excited! I have so many questions I want to know about the what will happen next, for example does Ruby's dad and brother come back for her? Will she ever see Darius Spratt again? etc, etc....

That's it for this post! Hope you guys enjoyed it and make sure you read this book! I promise you, you will not regret it! Why not recommend some books to us about what we should read in the comment's below? Make sure to follow us and keep checking back for new post's! XD
