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.

It is the story of a young girl raised in the wilderness...

4.0 #76 - Not A Drop To Drink
I had such a great time reading this book. I’m a sucker for post-apocalyptical novels and even more when it is realistic and it involves bad-ass female characters. Lynn lives with her mother in a world where water has become rare and expensive, they have a pond and will do everything to protect is a...

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).

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...
