About the Author

Virginia Bergin learned to roller-skate with the children of eminent physicists.

She currently lives on a council estate in Bristol and has taken to feeding the birds in between writing the sequel, H202.

Reviews

The Rain was hilarious and really well written from the viewpoint of a teenager. * heyhollyjune.blogspot.co.uk * The Rain is just wonderful, there is no instalove, there is just plain getting on with it with lots of shoplifting, attempting to drive and trying to survive whilst making sure you look nice! I really think you should read this book, you need to remember it is written from a 15 year olds POV, there is a lot of moaning and being selfish but it's funny, heartwarming, cringy, sad and terrifying, it is truly amazing. * redheatherduff.blogspot.co.uk * Utterly brilliant... loved with a passion. * lizlovesbooks.com * I can't stop thinking about this book. Virginia Bergin's The Rain is unlike any apocalyptic novel I've read, mostly due to the hilarious and quirky but utterly believable narrator Ruby Morris. * ashleighonline.wordpress.com * The Rain' left me speechless! It is such a unique thriller that was very fast paced - I would recommend this book to all teens as it is quite something out of the ordinary! * 11horncastlea.wordpress.com * Is not a novel about the English summer but a nightmare vision of the future where a single drop of rain can kill. * express.co.uk * A gripping- page turner with moments of surreal humour and great tenderness - not to mention dread as the raindrops fall. * The Bookseller * Distinctly British dystopian survival thriller. Great page turner, and I particularly enjoyed the very normal heroine after so many Katniss-lites. * The Bookseller * Tense, scary, and high emotion, The Rain will have you on the edge of your seat and afraid to step outside. * dark-readers.com * Overall I found the concept interesting, there is a flood (no pun intended) of zombie apocalypse books out at the moment but the idea of the rain being poisoned was different. The characters were likable and flawed and it was realistic in the events that befell them all, no super powers to save them here! * NetGalley *
