Fickle Fish Films Options ‘Not a Drop to Drink’ by Mindy McGinnis

NotADropToDrink__140424172512 Ok, this book is somewhere on my shelves and it’s just moved to the top of my list. Fickle Fish (you may know the owners Stephenie Meyer and Meghan Hibbett) have optioned the book for film.

The book, by Mindy McGinnis was released last fall. It’s Mindy’s debut and according to Goodreads – here’s the synopsis –

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.

“Mindy’s unique voice made for a truly riveting read; this story seamlessly blends gritty and dangerous dystopian realism with the larger themes of life vs. survival that we feel audiences will really respond to,” Hibbett said in a statement announcing the option.

We’re thrilled for the project! Can’t wait to see what Stephenie and Megan do with this film! Keep up with all Fickle Fish’s projects –

Head Bitch In Charge

I work a lot. Fangirlish is my baby. I work in social media professionally and I love it - which is probably why I don't keep up on my own. I don't sleep enough and I obsess too much over my favorite things. I need to work on combing my hair more. Or at elast I need to stop dying it different colors.
