The Rains by Gregg Hurwitz - ADVISABLE

Hurwitz, Gregg The Rains, 352 pages.  Scholastic Inc. 2016. $9 Language: PG (16 swears, 0 ‘f’); Mature Content: PG; Violence: R. (zombies, graphic violence)

Only a week ago Creek’s Cause was one of the most quiet, peaceful towns on the East coast. After Chance Rain and his brother Patrick’s parents died in a drunk driving car accident nothing was the same it was the biggest struggle of their lives… or so they thought. When a raging meteor shower hits the town and strange things take over the adults they trusted and knew nobody is safe. Well that is if you are younger than 18. Chance will do anything to save his town, and his brother who turns 18 only about a week after the massacre. Determined, Chance leaves the safety of the school where the survivors have stayed hidden and goes on a tough quest to save his brother’s girlfriend Alex and possibly the world from what seems like a not so human being.      
I like this book a lot because it has a high impulse level and a lot of action. Although at first it was a bit confusing few chapters in I fully understood. This book is a mildly scary book and made for a really exciting feeling while reading.
