Review of Waterproof by Amber Garr & Giveaway

Completely Obsessed.

*As spoiler-free as possible*

My heart was racing from the very first page. Read the first line and POW—you are smack in the middle of a struggle for survival. Waterproof introduces you to a world without water. I honestly never imagined how utterly horrifying such a world could be, but this book will make you think long after you’ve finished reading.

Characters: The characters are WONDERFUL! The reader will spend time inside the minds of both Vee and Zach—and you will dearly love them both. Vee is nothing short of awesome—she’s the type of BFF you want in your corner. What I loved most about Vee is that she can be both supremely tough and vulnerable to her heart at the same time—it’s beautiful that she hasn’t allowed the world to harden her heart and ability to love. Some of this might have to do with Zach…and, oh, do I love him! He’s the perfect package of a BFF and boyfriend. The way Zach cares for Vee…swoon! He’s willing to put everything on the line to save her. Riley is another character I’m totally digging, though I do have some reservations based on his connections and his growing feelings for a certain character whose heart already belongs to one of my favorite characters. I could seriously go on and on and on about how much I love the characters in this waterless world!

World & Story: Brilliant, terrifying, eye-opening. Amber has imagined such a realistic world that I’m literally ‘there’ when reading. Her story/world has made me really stop and think about water usage and our future.

Overall: This is dystopian storytelling at its absolute best. Amber has created a realistically terrifying world that will keep you on the edge of your seat with characters that you worry about, root for, and cry over. Honestly, I’m in complete love with every single element of Vee and Zach’s story as they fight to stay together, alive, and free. I highly, highly recommend Waterproof to all readers.

Rating (yeah, I’m holiday-obsessed, so I rate by snowmen. I’m also a giant dork):
