Dry

By Jarrod Shusterman, Neal Shusterman

When the California drought escalates to catastrophic proportions, a group of teens is forced to make life and death decisions in this harrowing story of survival from New York Times bestselling author Neal Shusterman, and Jarrod Shusterman.

Read a sampler of the latest book by New York Times bestselling author Neal Shusterman and his son, Jarrod Shusterman. The drought – or the Tap-Out, as everyone calls it – has been going on for a while now. Everyone’s lives have become an endless list of don’ts: don’t water the lawn, don’t take long showers, don't panic. Until the taps run dry. Suddenly, Alyssa’s quiet suburban street spirals into a warzone of desperation; neighbours and families turned against each other on the hunt for water. And when her parents don’t return, she and her younger brother must team up with an unlikely group in search of water. Each of them will need to make impossible choices to survive.

  • The film rights to Dry were won by Paramount Pictures in a multi-studio auction. Neal and Jarrod are currently writing the script.
  • Neal Shusterman's New York Times-bestselling Arc of the Scythe trilogy has been sold to 16 territories.
