Review:

A high-quality survivalist story for readers who enjoy internal story arcs as well as external dangers.--Kirkus Reviews

A brutally beautiful debut, not to be missed. NOT A DROP TO DRINK is an unwavering story with incredible drama, danger, and power. This writer is for real.--Michael Grant, New York Times bestselling author of the Gone series

I can't say enough good things about the writing, and the characterization. If you're looking for grit, realism and heart, you found it.--Kendare Blake, author of Anna Dressed in Blood

Deftly written, Mindy McGinnis's NOT A DROP TO DRINK is a frightening picture of a potential future without fresh water, which left me ridiculously grateful for my working faucet. This post-apocalyptic survival tale is about so much more than just survival. I loved it.--Jodi Meadows, author of the Incarnate trilogy

Those in search of fierce female survivalist characters need look no further than this.--Booklist

I can t say enough good things about the writing, and the characterization. If you re looking for grit, realism and heart, you found it.--Kendare Blake, author of Anna Dressed in Blood"

Deftly written, Mindy McGinnis s NOT A DROP TO DRINK is a frightening picture of a potential future without fresh water, which left me ridiculously grateful for my working faucet. This post-apocalyptic survival tale is about so much more than just survival. I loved it.--Jodi Meadows, author of the Incarnate trilogy"

The intensity of action moves the story forward, but not at the expense of character development. The complex, authentic characters are neither fully evil nor unbelievably good. The honest and hopeful ending--while not "happily ever after"--will resonate with readers and leave them asking for more.--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

In an understated but gripping debut, McGinnis paints a stark picture of a world not far removed from our own, concentrating on Lynn's gradual emotional growth as contrasted against the physical harshness of her existence.--Publishers Weekly

Set against the grim backdrop of an all-too-possible future, McGinnis's very fine coming of age novel doesn't stint on lifes hard lessons--or its triumphs. Lynn's story is what Laura Ingalls Wilder might've penned if she'd traveled a frontier imagined by Cormac McCarthy.--Ilsa Bick, award-winning author of the Ashes trilogy and THE SIN-EATER'S CONFESSION

From the Back Cover:

Regret was for people with nothing to defend, people who had no water.

Lynn knows every threat to her pond: drought, a snowless winter, coyotes, and, most important, people looking for a drink. She makes sure anyone who comes near the pond leaves thirsty or doesn't leave at all.

Confident in her own abilities, Lynn has no use for the world beyond the nearby fields and forest. Having a life means dedicating it to survival and the constant work of gathering wood and water. Having a pond requires the fortitude to protect it, something Mother taught her well during their quiet hours on the rooftop, rifles in hand.

But wisps of smoke on the horizon mean one thing: strangers. The mysterious footprints by the pond, the nighttime threats, and the gunshots make it all too clear Lynn has exactly what they want, and they won't stop until they get it. . . .

With evocative, spare language and incredible drama, danger, and romance, debut author Mindy McGinnis depicts one girl's journey in a barren world not so different from our own.
