Introducing our Third Mystery Author!

Ahem, drumroll please...

We Friday the Thirteeners are very, very, excited to introduce our third Mystery Author:

Mindy McGinnis




Mindy's making her YA debut with her novel NOT A DROP TO DRINK. To be published Fall 2013 from Katherine Tegen/Harper Collins, here's a teaser:

NOT A DROP TO DRINK, the story of a teenage girl surviving in a rural America where an ounce of fresh water is worth more than gold and death wanders the countryside as thirst, cholera, and the guns of strangers; when her mother dies in an accident, the girl must decide between defending her pond alone or banding together with a crippled neighbor, a pregnant woman, a filthy orphan, and a teenage boy who awakens feelings she doesn’t understand.

Not only does NOT A DROP TO DRINK sound fabulous, but Mindy's pretty awesome herself, and we are more than ecstatic to have her join us! But her hazing just wouldn't be complete without a Truth or Dare, so make sure to submit one for her here. She'll be answering a week from today, March 27th, so make sure to check back to see how she does.

In the meantime, please join us in giving a huge welcome to Mindy, our newest Friday the Thirteener!

  10. Mindy, welcome to the party. I look forward to not being the only four eyes. I'm tired of getting beat up by the other Thirteeners. By the way, if they ask you to meet them at the four posts after school, say yes.

    1. Hee, four posts after school. I should never have told you that, April! And, hey, I used to wear glasses before surgery, so I'm still with you there!

    2. For the record, April just called me out :) Take off those glasses before I give you an Irish hug!

    3. Bring it, Mindy. Just so you know, The Four Posts Rules state that nothing counts until blood is drawn, and you get double points if the victim wears specs.

    4. Oh no, so can we both just start out with double points and call it a draw? :)
