Fans of classic frontier survival stories, as well as readers of dystopian literature, will enjoy this futuristic story about an epic cross-country journey.
In a Handful of Dust is set ten years after the first novel, Not a Drop to Drink, as a dangerous disease strikes the community where teenage Lucy lives. When her adoptive mother, Lynn, takes Lucy away from their home and friends in order to protect her, Lucy struggles to figure out what home means. During their journey west to find a new life, the two face nature’s challenges, including hunger, mountains, and deserts.
New York Times bestselling author Michael Grant says Not a Drop to Drink is a debut “not to be missed,” and this companion title is full of Mindy McGinnis’s evocative, spare language matched with incredible drama and danger. In a Handful of Dust is perfect for fans of the Partials, Enclave, and Legend series.

    I enjoyed this sequel to Not A Drop To Drink. Having the narrative from Lucy's perspective was nice and I'm glad Lynn wasn't lost in it. She was still very much part of the story and badass as ever. The first book was slow paced and this one was too but there were a lot more trials that had me on edge. When they roll into Las Vegas was particularly interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed this subtle post-apocalyptic story.
