Waiting On Wednesday (89) The Rain by Virginia Bergin

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine where readers showcase which books they are highly anticipating. For this weeks Waiting on Wednesday, I chose The Rain by Virginia Bergin.

Expected Publication:
July 17, 2014 from Pan Macmillan

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.

Why Am I Waiting? 
In all honesty, I have no clue if The Rain is even being released in the US as the first time I heard of it was on Netgalley as an out of region book *sad panda face*. However, I'm determined to make this book mine no matter what even if I have to cross the ocean or use Fish Pond or The Book Depository to do it. I mean hello toxic rain that consumes people from within ugh hell yeah!! Seriously this plot is what dreams or you know nightmares are made of. Super excited, can't wait. Is it July yet?!

Since I'm curious, Have you heard of this book before? 
If so, Do you plan on reading The Rain? 
What do you think is the cause of the toxic rain?

    1. All I keep thinking about is a documentary I once saw where the girl was allergic to water and she had to figure out how to live in the world without relying on it for drinking or bathing.
