Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Sixteen-year-old Lynn will do anything to protect her valuable water source, but the arrival of new neighbors forces her to reconsider her attitudes"--

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2013 October #2
    When a cholera epidemic reduces quality of life to times not unlike the wild frontier days—filled with isolation and self-reliance—Lynn and her mother work hard days purifying water from their pond. It's a life-giving resource that they protect day and night in shifts, shooting any bold strangers who might stumble across it, while tending to other chores like chopping wood and growing crops. When her mother is killed by coyotes, Lynn is truly alone. With the threat of dangerous men to the south and families to the east, Lynn is forced to reach out and find people she can rely on. McGinnis creates quite fine groundwork in the beginning, capturing the closeness of Lynn and her mother with deft exposition and intense character building. Where this debut runs aground a bit is with the passage of time as some elements of the plot tend to drag. But once the final stream of action ramps up, it's a sprint to the finish. Those in search of fierce female survivalist characters need look no further than this. Copyright 2013 Booklist Reviews.
