Keoka Lake, a YA novel

IMG_6045“Keoka Lake” is a coming-of-age story about a 16-year-old girl named Alice whose parents pull her out of boarding school before the end of the year and tell her she has to take care of her grandmother for the summer. It’s 1985, and Alice is furious about being left at the family compound in the middle of nowhere, Maine. She’d rather be loitering in Nantucket with her wealthy boarding school classmates, but her father tells her they can’t afford to send her back to school unless she helps her grandmother.

Over the course of the summer, Alice grows closer to her grandmother, and discovers family secrets that threaten the future of the family compound. When her grandmother pleads with Alice to help her save the lake, she realizes the importance of things, people, and places that last.
