Regret was for people with nothing to defend, people who had no water. 

Lynn knows every threat to her pond: drought, a snowless winter, coyotes, and, most importantly, people looking for a drink. She makes sure anyone who comes near the pond leaves thirsty, or doesn't leave at all.

Confident in her own abilities, Lynn has no use for the world beyond the nearby fields and forest. Having a life means dedicating it to survival, and the constant work of gathering wood and water. Having a pond requires the fortitude to protect it, something Mother taught her well during their quiet hours on the rooftop, rifles in hand.

But wisps of smoke on the horizon mean one thing: strangers. The mysterious footprints by the pond, nighttime threats, and gunshots make it all too clear Lynn has exactly what they want, and they won’t stop until they get it….

With evocative, spare language and incredible drama, danger, and romance, debut author Mindy McGinnis depicts one girl’s journey in a barren world not so different than our own.

Lori's thoughts:

I'm a fan of dystopian and this was well written and captivating. The only thing that I could have done without is the romance. The book would have been just as good, if not better, without the romantic elements. I thought that it felt forced. Otherwise, I liked the characters. I liked the idea behind the book. I loved the writing. I think that this could have just as easily taken place in the "old days," as opposed to the future. I am interested in reading the companion novel next.
