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.
Hands down the best book I've read in a while!
My English teacher bought the kids that read "Not a Drop to Drink" a copy of "A Handful of Dust" because we were all dying to see what happened next! You are such a talented author, I need more books! *Spoiler* I just wanted to kill Lucy when she was being so rude to Lyne in Las Vegas, when she started beating her I wanted to throw the book so bad but I didn't want to damage it since it was so new, and I wanted to see what happened. I literally sat for 6-7 hours and read this book beginning to end. WE WANT MORE BOOKS!!1!1!!
