Fans of classic frontier survival stories as well as readers of dystopian literature will enjoy this futuristic story where water is worth more than gold.

Teenage Lynn has been taught to defend her pond against every threat: 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. But when strangers appear, 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 …

New York Times bestselling author Michael Grant says Not a Drop to Drink is a debut “not to be missed.” With evocative, spare language, and incredible drama, danger, and romance, Mindy McGinnis depicts one girl’s journey in a frontier-like world not so different from our own.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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

  • “[This] understated but gripping debut…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. Character-driven but with intense moments, this story works best because of its narrow scope and focused setting, with world-building details largely left to the imagination.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Those in search of fierce female survivalist characters need look no further than this.”

    Booklist

  • “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.”

    VOYA

  • “A high-quality survivalist story for readers who enjoy internal story arcs as well as external dangers.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Deftly written…This post-apocalyptic survival tale is about so much more than just survival. I loved it.”

    Jodi Meadows, author of the Incarnate trilogy

  • “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

  • Selected for the Autumn 2013 Kids' Indie Next List: Teens
