Drought is about a girl named Ruby who lives in a cult in the woods. The cult leader, Darwin, beats and hurts all the people there and makes them collect water off of trees, because he thinks it makes people immortal. And the water does, but it is not the scrapping off of plants, but Ruby’s blood, which is put in secretly every night. I found this book to be very slow throughout, and very hard to understand in the beginning, it took me about 70 pages to get what was going on. I enjoyed the idea of it but would not recommend it to other people simply because I felt like it was work getting through this book.
