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 importantly, 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, 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, debut author Mindy McGinnis depicts one girl’s journey in a barren world not so different than 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...

3.0 Not a Drop to Drink.
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...

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...
