Dry is about Alyssa and Garret, whose lives completely alter after the drought. Alyssa and Garret are siblings who live in California with their parents and uncle. Suddenly, the water supply is gone. Therefore, families turn against each other, striving for water. Her parents are gone, and her brother and her lives are threatened.  Can Alyssa fix the problem with the help of her neighbor, Kelton?

I enjoyed reading Dry because the genre is realistic fiction. The story includes real-life problems and solutions. I also enjoy the way the plot is written. I would reread his book. Secondly, I appreciate that there are two perspectives in the book. One being Alyssa’s and the other, Kelton’s. The cover is very astounding. I like that the surface is quite simple but elegant as it is. The cover seems to contain a black fire with a red background.  I would give this book a rating of 4/5.
