Read The Lake Effect Online Free - 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.

This book is the perfect summer read. You can tell by just looking at the cover, but the story within proves the summer theme. This novel was like none other. It wasn't the classic YA contemporary plot, making this plot very unique and interesting to read.
I found myself laughing during the durat...

He works a part-time job, plays on sports teams, and helps his grandmother out whenever he can. He's the picture perfect kid. He gets a job for the summer helping out an elderly Serbian...

Quirky, funny and just that little bit of heart to make me feel for this main character! While I didn't love it as much as I loved McCahan's Love and Other Foreign Words, I still thought it was a good read. I particularly liked the way it was simply about a summer -- all the new elements in one's...

This book didn't work out for me, sadly.

This is one of those perfect summer reads—the type of book you can read all in one sitting on a sunny morning (which is exactly what I did!).
What Fed My Addiction:
Good balance of light tone and heavy topics.

Let's be clear, this IS a summer romance, but the narrator is a guy. Briggs has graduated high school after doing everything that his parents expected of him. He is hired to help an elderly woman in South Haven, MI over the summer, and he definitely gets more than he bargained for. I laughed out...

A few weeks ago, I went into the teen section of my library's overdrive and checked out a number of books. I can't remember why, quite possibly because I was expecting that the adult section would be updated that day and it wasn't and I really wanted to download some books. As a result I've proba...
