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 frontierlike world not so different from our own.

5.0 Not a Drop to Drink
This is it. Best book of 2016 so far, and it's going to be hard to beat. It's been a long time since I've struggled to hold back tears (and I did because I knew if I started bawling I wouldn't stop). This book... This book has broken me. Read it in a few hours, but I know this hangover will last a c...

Not a bad book. It did take me a while to get into the flow of the writing style, I don't know if the author was trying to make a strange accent for the characters (redneck?) or she just has an unusual style, but once i finally got the hang of it I started enjoying Not A Drop To Drink a lot more.Als...

5.0 Not a Drop to Drink
First, I need to point out the cover of this book. I think it’s stunning. It definitely got my attention right away. Whoever designed it deserves a serious pay raise. I’ve lost count of how many young adult dystopias I’ve read over the past few years. They’ve all started to blur together in my mind,...

3.5 Not a drop to drink - not sure what to think!
This is a hard one to review. I'm not sure what I think... I bought this at a reduced price for 99 cents at the beginning of September because I'd read a few articles about how great it was. I started it almost immediately and couldn't get past the first sentence for about two weeks. Then I return...
