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 beyond their 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. 



*Although this book was marketed as a companion/standalone novel I definitely recommend reading the first book*

Ok let me start by saying that this is a good book  the issue I had with this book is that it was not as amazing as the first one but still it's worth reading.

Things I liked

-Lynn is just one of those characters that was created to break my heart. I absolutely loved seeing how she has changed in the time that passed between the first book and this one. I wish the book had been written in her Point of View.

-The fact that the characters that didn't make it to this book were still mentioned and we got to see how their absence affected Lynn and Lucy.

Things I wasn't a fan of

I didn't connect with Lucy as much as I did with Lynn, there were a few times that I almost gave up on the book. My biggest issue with her was how naive and selfish she was at the start of the novel, she is living in a pretty screwed up world yet she was incredibly trusting of every stranger she met.
