** spoiler alert ** Ivy - If you like dystopian tales, you might like this one. Only problem is, it’s not a dystopian tale. Drought is set during our time. Ruby and her people are living in a forest away from cities and towns. You really don’t know its set in modern times until Ford comes into the picture. Ruby is their leader’s, Otto, daughter. He has saved them but then disappeared. Ruby has his power though. Her blood is special.

Darwin, the guy who owns the property and Ruby’s people, thinks the water in the forest is special. He makes them collect every drop with plastic spoons. What he doesn’t know, it’s actually Ruby’s blood making the water special. Her blood heals people, like fully restoring them from their wounds. You get to see her magic at work in the story. She is there to help her people but she really just wants to escape Darwin’s property. With or without Ford.

The story is great in some parts, but it’s a slow read. I thought it was okay but not my favorite book.
