Publisher's Summary

It has been two weeks, and now Ruby is totally alone. People weren’t prepared for the rain, got caught out in it, didn’t realise 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 sets off on a journey that will take her the length of the country - surviving in the only way she knows how.

What the Critics Say

"Distinctly British dystopian survival thriller. Great page turner, and I particularly enjoyed the very normal heroine." (The Bookseller)

"Tense, scary, and high emotion, The Rain will have you on the edge of your seat and afraid to step outside." (dark-readers.com)

    Story
    "Gripping, Real, not your average dystopian"
    Where does The Rain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best. It wasn't so fantastical that you knew you were listening to a fictional book. It's in the form of girl's journal of events. It seemed all too real at times.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It seems so real, like it could happen. I was outside shoveling snow as I listened to the first hour, and found myself getting depressed and scared... In a good way!


    What does Avita Jay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The British Accent! for an American anyway.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Not your average dystopian"

    Story
    "A very butterfly good book. Very entertaining"
    What made the experience of listening to The Rain the most enjoyable?

    There was never a dull moment, you just had to keep reading.


    What does Avita Jay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    A voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it was a long book but didn't seem like it.


    Any additional comments?

    It's an apocalyptic book from the view of a 15 year old girl, with teenage problems.
    It's fun, sad, exciting & makes you think too.
