The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world that is plagued by rain. People are living in small villages on whatever high ground can be found and a day when it is not raining is cause for celebration. Tess and Mabel are sisters who have been orphaned and do what they can to survive. Mabel, as the oldest, feels responsible for Tess, so when Tess takes off on her own one day, Mabel panics. Has something bad happened to Tess?
I found this story fascinating. As a post-apocalyptic story, I found the idea of a world where it constantly rained to be a new one. This is a short book and so the author puts you right in the middle of the drama from the start. I liked the characters of Tess and Mabel from the beginning, and the author definitely left me curious as to where the story would go in future installments. This is a great story for when your short on time.
