It's live!! Cover Reveal: In a Handful of Dust by Mindy McGinnis + Giveaway (US/Canada)

 

Welcome to the second cover reveal of the week, YABCers!

Today we're celebrating the cover for IN A HANDFUL OF DUST by Mindy McGinnis releasing September 23, 2014 from Katherine Tegen/HarperCollins. Before we get to the cover, here's a message from Mindy:

 

Hello YABC readers! Welcome to the official cover reveal for IN A HANDFUL OF DUST, which is a companion novel to my debut NOT A DROP TO DRINK. The amazingly talented Erin Fitzsimmons at HarperCollins was once again my cover artist, and she came up with something that I think illustrates this book's relationship to DRINK very well. You'll notice that it coordinates nicely, but the colors at work here are wildly different. I think that's a great approach for a book that serves as a companion novel rather than a sequel. Hats off to Erin and all of her talent!

IN A HANDFUL OF DUST

by Mindy McGinnis
Release date: September 23, 2014
Publisher: Katherine Tegen/HarperCollins
ISBN-13: 978-0062198501

 

About the Book

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.

Wow! I didn't think Not a Drop to Drink was going to have a sequel. The cover is just as wonderful and brilliant as the first! I'm in love. Can't wait to see what Mindy has next for us (and Lynn)!

LOVE the cover and love that it matches with Not a Drop to Drink!

When I saw that there was going to be another book I got worried because NADTD was perfect on its own as a standalone and it seems like everything is in a series these days. However, I'm glad that we're getting a new perspective with Lucy and that it's not directly taking place after NADTD.

I like the cover, but it's going to take some getting used to. It grows on me the more I look at it. I like the synopsis too, though I'm a little confused as to why this is considered a companion and not a sequel. I guess I'll find out in time.
