Editorial Reviews

Review

★ “Observant, sarcastic, compelling, and very funny . . . this thoroughly enjoyable read is a seductive invitation to relax and let life happen.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"[An] inviting, thoughtful novel." —The Chicago Tribune

"A dazzlingly hilarious trifecta of awkward growing pains, social gaffes, and the romance that will warm your heart forever . . . Erin McCahan is the reigning queen of summer YA reads." —PopSugar

"Elegant and touching . . . Heartwarming [too], illustrating the ways that family can expand beyond blood." —Publishers Weekly

“If the cover didn't already convince you, The Lake Effect is a vibrant and smart summer read, perfect to tote around on vacation." —Bustle 

"Erin McCahan has done it again with this quintessential summer read guaranteed to make you laugh, cry, and everything in between." —BuzzFeed

"Clever, charming, and sweet, this ode to Lake Michigan, small beach towns, grandmothers, and relationships is the perfect coming-of-age book for the end of the summer. Packed with great characters, snarky dialogue, and buckets of heart, Briggs is a character to root for. Kick back and let the lake effect work its magic." —Booklist Reader
 
“This is YA summer romance at its best: not set on an exotic beach or the tourist traps of Europe, but rather right here at home in our own backyards." —HelloGiggles

"McCahan writes clever and charming characters . . . The Lake Effect will find readers among the John Green fan set: those who like their teen protagonists brilliant but vulnerable.”—VOYA

“The rare book that fills you with delight from the first page to the last. The Lake Effect is funny and witty and a little bit sad and every word glows with brilliance." —Francisco X. Stork, author of Marcelo in the Real World

“A funny and poignant YA novel about that fun and eye-opening summer between high school and college." —PureWow

"Intriguing . . . Compassionate." —Booklist

"Thought provoking—and at times hilarious . . . A great summer read . . . Recommend this title to those who enjoyed Cara Chow’s Bitter Melon, John Green’s An Abundance of Katherines, and Ned Vizzini’s It’s Kind of a Funny Story." —SLJ

"The perfect smart, beachside read. This is an unforgettable story about a boy who thinks he’s got his future figured out, and a girl who knows what she wants but is scared to get it. The Lake Effect will pull you in like the waves of the lake and won’t let you go until the last satisfying page.” —Stephanie Elliot, author of Sad Perfect
 
Refreshingly honest and real. Every one of Erin McCahan’s characters rings perfectly unique and true—you’ll laugh with them, struggle with them, and seriously hate to leave them when the book is over. An absolute must-read.” Elise Allen, New York Times bestselling co-author of Elixir

About the Author

Erin McCahan is a native Michigander who grew up on the beaches of Grand Haven and Macatawa. Now a resident of landlocked New Albany, Ohio, she and her husband return every summer to North Beach in South Haven, on the shores of Lake Michigan. Look for them under the red and white striped umbrella.
