Not a Drop to Drink, by Mindy McGinnisRead about another entry on the list.
You really can’t talk about YA novels where water is a resource to be fought over without discussing Mindy McGinnis’ debut and its companion. In Not a Drop to Drink and sequel In a Handful of Dust, the world has gone dry. It’s in this parched world that Lynn stands guard over the pond outside her home, struggling to stay alive despite the danger lurking everywhere. Stark and gripping, it’s one of my favorite YA reads ever, packed with drama and a brutal landscape where hope seems as dried up as the water.
