The first book on my list of recommendations is The Lake by Annalisa Grant.
I chose this book as the first book to be discussed in my new group discussion group on Goodreads. It turned out to be much better than I thought that it would. It is a story about Layla, a young girl who has experienced hardships in her life, and is just looking for some sense of peace, and a chance at a life with no sadness.
Her new adventures begin when she moves from Florida to North Carolina to live with her aunt and uncle. She doesn’t really know them and honestly doesn’t know why that is. It is not her intent it seems to get too comfortable in her new living situation, new school, or make any new friends. However, all of that begins to change once she meets Will.
Although this is a Young Adult Fiction novel, and I’m not a young adult; I am thoroughly enjoying Ms. Grant’s story. In fact, I read this first book in one day and will start the next one as soon as I’m done with this post.
I did find a few typos in the story, but in our society today, it seems to be a normal and acceptable occurrence, and these things did not sway my enjoyment of this book, nor will it change my rating. Let me know what you think about this story after you read it. I would love to have some feedback on it and further discuss it.
On a scale from 1-10, this book is a 10.
