The Secrets of Lake Road by Karen Katchur
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a sweet and sad read about the secrets safely stored within the confines of a summer lake town. Twelve-year-old Caroline arrives to spend the summer with her Gram. Her mother, who grew up there, is aloof and emotionally unreachable. Tragedy strikes when six-year-old Sara disappears and is thought to have succumbed to the depths of the lake where a previous tragedy is dredged up, implicating Caroline's parents in the death of a young man they once knew. Karen Katchur is masterful in transporting the reader to the scene. and her characters are rich and compelling.
