The Lake Effect by Erin McCahan (3 out of 5)

I’m not sure why I took this one, but I think the young punky kid probably had something to do with it. It certainly wasn’t the cover, because I don’t love it! The boy in the water doesn’t look like I imagine Briggs would look, but rather a Justin Bieber looking mofo mannequin. This book comes out in July, 2017, and those teens who like a quick and not very challenging read will eat this up like I eat tostadas. It’s brought to us by Dial Books, sometime next month. It is a pretty funny book. 

Briggs Henry is quite a fun character. I thought a lot of a younger Ferris Bueller while I was reading this. He’s just graduated and looking to ditch out on his boring and staid lifestyle and hit the beach. He’s got a job as an assistant to an old eccentric broad named Mrs. Bozic, in a huge mansion near the beach. What could go wrong??! The first thing his boss tells him is to get gussied up for her funeral. Although she is quite alive. Briggs has NO idea what to make of this broad, and no idea why his charm school tactics do not get him any high marks with next door object of his eye, Abagail. This is a hoot and holler. Try to get your teens to read it, especially if they just got done reading heavy material. This is the perfect antidote.
