IN A HANDFUL OF DUST Cover Reveal and ARC Giveaway!

Yesterday the cover for IN A HANDFUL OF DUST, a companion novel to NOT A DROP TO DRINK, was revealed on the YABC blog. Head over there to enter the ARC giveaway!


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.

OMG I am SO excited. I freaking love the cover, and Not A Drop to Drink was in my top 3 books of 2013 (as I knew it would be, if you remember my email from months before it even released) and I absolutely can't wait until this releases!!! I love the cover, it's amazing and will look amazing next to NADTD :)
