Not a Drop to Drink
Profession: Author. Event Coordinator. Back cover copy 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.
But wisps of smoke on the horizon mean one thing: strangers.

The mysterious footprints by the pond, nighttime threats, and 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, Mindy McGinnis depicts one girl's journey in a barren world not so different from our own. Review quote A high-quality survivalist story for readers who enjoy internal story arcs as well as external dangers.
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. This writer is for real.
If you're looking for grit, realism and heart, you found it. This post-apocalyptic survival tale is about so much more than just survival.

Our customer reviews Lynn and her mother live in a house by a pond where their entire existence is to defend it. Water is scarce in the world and the more you have access to water, the more people will take it by force. Lynn grew up defending their little pond and thinks nothing of it until some strangers change her viewpoint and realizes that there are good people out there too. This reality is so downright realistic, it's scary. Not to mention a growing virus called Chlorea that kills everyone in its path. I couldn't but think of such a harsh and brutal world. This was Lynn's world and even though she was a country girl and knew how to live out in the wild, she managed to struggle and keep on surviving the most harshest realities.

Death, sickness, loneliness, she managed to stay strong and I deeply admire her character. She's not like any character I've read about before and that says a lot. Her strength is clearly evident by the turning point in the book. I loved her attitude and her willingness to help and grow. Even the secondary characters like Lucy and Shebbs were wonderful additions. They showed her how to be a family, to be able to laugh and cry.
