*Cover Might Not Be Final*

Summary: Ruby Prosser dreams of escaping the Congregation and the early-nineteenth century lifestyle that’s been practiced since the community was first enslaved. She plots to escape the vicious Darwin West, his cruel Overseers, and the daily struggle to gather the life-prolonging Water that keeps the Congregants alive and gives Darwin his wealth and power. But if Ruby leaves, the Congregation will die without the secret ingredient that makes the Water special: her blood. So she stays. But when Ruby meets Ford, the new Overseer who seems barely older than herself, her desire for freedom is too strong. He’s sympathetic, irresistible, forbidden—and her only access to the modern world. Escape with Ford would be so simple, but can Ruby risk the terrible price, dooming the only world she’s
ever known?


My Thoughts: Drought sounds like a refreshing and unique read. I am a fan of Pam's writing, I really enjoyed her first novel, Candor. So, I am sure this one will be just as good.

What are your thoughts on Drought?

Wow, this sounds like a dark and original read. Is it just me or do dystopian novels tend to have more innovative premises? The cover is really striking as well! Great pick!
