Not a Drop to Drink - Mindy McGinnis

A beautifully meandering and emotional tale of endurance and survival. Our protagonist, Lynn, is living in a world where water is becoming an incredibly scarce resource. After she loses her mother, her world becomes perilous and she no longer knows who to trust. With a pond in her back yard, Lynn has more to defend than might be possible on her own. She soon notices smoke on the horizon, and mysterious footprints by the pond, and Lynn realizes she may have to go to extremes to protect herself and others who have escaped the tyranny of the cities that are hoarding critical resources and forcing people into poverty just for a drop to drink. Mindy McGinnis is a wonderful new voice in YA, and this book is not to be missed.

Highly Recommended
