Serve Your Country, Conserve Your Water, Observe Your Neighbor
This is the slogan of the Sustainability Unit and of a country gone eco-hysterical. After nearly twelve months without rain and the hinges of the world barely still oiled, Thomas and his younger brother, Dustin, set out across a drought-ridden landscape in search of answers. What they discover along the way will change their lives, and their country, forever.
The Cloud Seeders weaves humor and heartache, as well as poetry and science, into a unique novel that defies categorization.
due to its very low levels. People no longer look to the skies for rain. Thomas and Dustin are patrolling the neighborhood for anyone using water illegally as they will get water for turning them in. They set out across a drought landscape in hoping to find their parents and in search for answers.
Will Thomas and Dustin ever find their parents? Will they find the answers to their questions? Most importantly how will the boys survive this new world together? I recommend The Cloud Seeders to anyone who enjoys this new type of interesting and well written genre!
