Lake Overturn: A Novel

Lake Overturn - Vestal McIntyre This is one book that is sorely missing from many best of 2009 lists. Personally, I enjoyed this one more than the other books I read this year that found themselves on those lists.Great characters with wonderful development abound. McIntyre handles his young characters with an expertise often lacking in fiction concerning adolescents. This novel has an interesting plot which kept my attention throughout, even when the issues were juvenile.A fabulous read. I definitely look forward to McIntyre's next novel.
