Unabridged Audiobook

Narrated By: Allyson Ryan

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Duration: 9 hours 12 minutes


The only thing bigger than the world is fear.
Lucy's life by the pond has always been full. She has water and friends, laughter and the love of her adoptive mother, Lynn, who has made sure that Lucy's childhood was very different from her own. Yet it seems Lucy's future is settled already—a house, a man, children, and a water source—and anything more than life by the pond is beyond reach.
When disease burns through their community, the once life-saving water of the pond might be the source of what's killing them now. Rumors of desalinization plants in California have lingered in Lynn's mind, and the prospect of a 'normal' life for Lucy sets the two of them on an epic journey west to face new dangers: hunger, mountains, deserts, betrayal, and the perils of a world so vast that Lucy fears she could be lost forever, only to disappear in a handful of dust.
In this companion to Not a Drop to Drink, Mindy McGinnis thrillingly combines the heart-swelling hope of a journey, the challenges of establishing your own place in the world, and the gripping physical danger of nature in a futuristic frontier.

    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.
