Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine, where you can spotlight an upcoming release that you're eagerly anticipating!

This week I'm waiting on:

In a Handful of Dust by Mindy McGinnis
Releases on: September 23rd, 2014 ADD IT TO GOODREADS!

FROM GOODREADS: 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.


1. I just recently read Not a Drop to Drink....in like, a little over three hours. OMG NEED MORE NOW.

2. Mindy McGinnis is an amazing writer.


4. I love the characters. 

5. I love everything, and I'm so excited to see what this world looks like in this companion novel set years down the road from when Not a Drop to Drink ended.
