Join us for a talk and signing with Grand Haven native Erin McCahan, as she presents her critically acclaimed young adult novel The Lake Effect, A funny, bracing, poignant YA romance and coming-of-age for fans of Huntley Fitzpatrick, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, and The Beginning of Everything.
When eighteen-year-old Briggs Henry decides to work for an eighty-four-year-old widow at her house on Lake Michigan the summer before college, he assumes he’ll take her to doctor appointments and help her with house work. Wrong. Briggs tries to leave behind his family and school troubles for a relaxing summer on the lake and instead encounters an eccentric elderly woman, tight-knit locals, and an enigmatic girl. Great for summer reading round-ups and Best YA of July round-ups, The Lake Effect is the perfect title for readers looking for a funny and refreshing summer romance set in Michigan!
