Title: Praying for Rain
Author: B.B. Easton
Date of Publication: April 11th, 2019
“None of this matters, and we’re all going to die.”
With only three days left until the predicted apocalypse, the small town of Franklin Springs, Georgia, has become a wasteland of abandoned cars, abandoned homes, abandoned businesses, and abandoned people. People like Rainbow Williams.
Rain isn’t afraid of dying. In fact, she’s looking forward to it. If she can just outrun her pain until April 23, she’ll never have to feel it at all.
“Supplies. Shelter. Self-defense.”
Wes Parker has survived every horrible thing this life has thrown at him with nothing more than his resourcefulness and disarming good looks. Why should the end of the world be any different? All he needs are some basic supplies, shelter, and a sucker willing to help him out, which is exactly what he finds when he returns to his hometown of Franklin Springs.
As society crumbles, dangers mount, and secrets refuse to stay buried, two lost souls are thrust together in a twist of fate—one who will do anything to survive and one who can’t wait to die.
Perhaps, together, they can learn how to live.
Before their time runs out.
I’ve missed a good dystopian book and this one was really awesome!
I liked Rain and Wes a lot! As the book progressed, I really felt for them. And their swoony moments were on fire! The only con was the pill popping that Rain did so often, but I get the reasoning.
The writing was so good here, as was the dialogue! Character driven stories are definitely my fave! There was romance, emotion, twists, and originality!
