There's never been anything like this rain before. I hear the monster growling, low and mean, his voice is the wind roaring all around us. This isn't like rain at all - there aren't raindrops, but big sheets of solid water, like a waterfall crashing down from the sky... Yesterday, Jose thought about music, girls, sports, his favourite ice-cream; he watched wild parrots fly across his home; he dreamed of travelling the world. But when the hurricane hits his little toen, it seems to swallow the sun. The world shrinks to life or death against that monstrous power, and Jose must find the strength to help his fellow survivors live on...
