Young Adult Fiction
Warning: while reading, have a glass of water at your side. Reading The Water Wars may cause extreme thirst!
This futuristic thriller explores what life would be like if water became the world’s most precious – and rare – resource. Siblings Vera and Will live in the republic of Illinowa (formerly the midwestern USA), a land parched by lack of water. There is no vegetation, dust gets everywhere, and very last drop of water is treated as if it is gold.
And then they meet Kai: standing in the middle of a road, casually drinking water from a plastic cup and then shockingly, illegally, tipping out the last few drops onto the dirt. They befriend this strange boy, and when he disappears one day without warning, they set out to investigate. From then on it’s non-stop action … a fast-paced adventure full of twists and turns, pirates, terrorists, and a trio of very brave kids, out to save the world.
This great summer read will keep you on the edge of your seat!
