Not a Drop to Drink - Mindy McGinnis
Not a Drop to Drink is a dystopian, but it’s not like others in it’s genre. Instead of trying to make the world different, it’s very much about survival.

Mindy McGinnis creates characters that make you want things to be better for them. They don’t know anything besides death and trying to protect what is theirs. Lynn doesn’t know anything different than making sure the water supply doesn’t dwindle. She doesn’t know how to react with anyone besides her Mom. Lynn’s mom is a very stark character. She tells it how it is, and doesn’t sugar coat anything at all. She wants her daughter to be strong and able to do things.

There aren’t very many places overloaded with action. That doesn’t hurt the story at all. You are focused on the things that the characters have to go through. The shortage of food and water is a possibility for them. Lynn and her mother face many obstacles. With many of these obstacles we meet new characters, but I’m going to leave it at that.

If you’re looking for a story that is heavy with romance, then this book isn’t for you. Make sure you have tissues ready for this book. Mindy McGinnis tore my heart out!
