    It appears I've had my fill of natural disaster novels for teens. This just isn't holding my attention in any way. All story beats and characters are too familiar. Hate to compare YA to adult novels, but Paolo Bacigalupi's The Water Knife was a much more interesting story about clim...

    This book is about Southern California running out of water. The situation is dire, but good fucking god, the main (female) character in this book is so mind-numbingly dumb that I don't want some water after drinking book, I want some fucking vodka, dammit. Yeah. I know the kids in...

    Only now do I see how dry his lips are. Not just dry but parched and chapped to the point of bleeding. None of these kids look right. Their skin is thin and almost leprous gray. The corners of their mouths are white with dried spit. And the look in their eyes is almost rabid. It's u...

    Well that was quite a ride, Shustermans. I?ve never been so thirsty as I?ve been the entire time I was reading Dry. This was a scary foreseeable future that is not far from being possible. I live in Arizona and we have been hearing threats for years about possible water restric...

    as someone who spent the first 22 years of their life growing up and living in the middle of a desert, droughts are not something new to think about. if anything, conserving water is second nature to me. but this book takes it beyond anything i have ever experienced, to an extreme that...

    I am actually so so thirsty right now. I have drunken more water while reading this book than I've drank in my entire life so like 10/10 this book will remind you to HYDRATE. Forget putting a reminder on your phone to drink more -- just read DRY and you will start crying over a tiny cu...

    One of my most anticipated books this year is Dry since it was written by my all-time favourite author, Neal Shusterman. And tell you what, it didn't disappoint me. Hah. I'm used to how Shusterman writes a novel so this wasn't a shocker that he's doing again the multiple POVs of cha...

    This review was originally posted on Books of My Heart 3.5 Stars Dry is a dystopian ecological disaster story based a little in fact and a lot in what if. It loosely reminds me of one of those blockbuster movies like 2012 and San Andreas where some things are just a smidge to...

    This book was so good! As I was reading it I was getting scared as this sort of thing could happen these days! I LOVE books about survival, and this one had adventure. I really enjoyed all the characters and how they came together. As this book has been optioned for a movie, I look...

    Are all of Neal Shusterman's novels this entertaining? If so, I must read more of them. This felt so realistic. If you're thinking about reading this, I highly recommend the audiobook. ...

    A book about the harrowing effects of climate change? Fuck yeah. Finally, even modern Young Adult literature is calling attention to the most important environmental issue of our decade that won't just affect one certain group of people. Oh no, climate change is coming for us all. Neal...

    A solid 4 star read! I very much enjoyed this book. A fantastic exploration of human nature, environmentalism, and survival. A word of advice ? don?t read this book without a beverage near you. I promise, you will become VERY thirsty. CW: violence, murder/death, sexual harassmen...

    "Dry" has solid writing and a very timely premise, dealing with current environmental issues pertaining to water use. There are some good family aspects I enjoyed; it's nice to see a YA novel where the families feel thought-out and realistic. I read this book in just a couple of days, ...

    I got this book because of a Bookbub promo (yes, again!) where the price of 0,00$ looked way to good to be true, and it was. Because I soon realized it was only a sample. Anyway, I got so hooked on the plot that I ended up getting the rest of the book, and I?m happy I did. This book ...

    What an amazing book! I love the way Neal Shusterman always takes a what-if scenario and morphs it to freaky disaster proportions. In this case, he and co-author Jared Shusterman have got a not-too-improbable scenario where southern California is having a drought, and FEMA decides to p...

    If there was ever a book that inspired me to stock up on water, this is the book. This was so realistic and really resonated with me. Neil Shusterman is really good about adding just the right amount of gritty details to make the story line pop out of the page. Having co-wrote this wit...
