Bee’s waiting on…
lake effect | n.
The effect of any lake, especially the Great Lakes, in modifying the weather in nearby areas
It’s the summer after his senior year, and driven, focused Briggs Henry is ready to leave behind his ex-girlfriend, his comically aggressive grandmother, and his parents’ money troubles for Lake Michigan and its miles of sandy beaches. He’s lined up a summer job working as a personal assistant and living in a gorgeous Victorian on the water—exactly the kind of house Briggs plans to buy his parents once he’s a multi-millionaire. But when he arrives, his boss, the eccentric Mrs. Bosic, tells him to get dressed for her funeral. Uh . . . It’s the first of many funerals they’ll attend this summer—to hilarious and eye-opening effect. Add to this a new set of friends-cum-enemies-cum-friends-again, and Abigail, the mysterious girl next door on whom Briggs’s charms repeatedly fail, and “the lake effect” is beginning to take on a whole new meaning.
why i’m waiting
YA Contemporary remains my go-to favorite genre and I am a sucker for books with a male protagonist. On top of that I really enjoyed Love and Other Foreign Words last year. This one sounds like it’s perfect for me and I can’t wait to read it.
