It's the summer after senior year, and Briggs Henry is leaving behind his ex-girlfriend and his parents' money troubles for Lake Michigan, sandy beaches, working a summer job as a personal assistant, and living in a gorgeous Victorian on the shore. Then he gets there. And his eighty-four-year-old boss tells him to put on a suit for her funeral. "Lake effect" takes on a whole new meaning in a summer of social gaffes, beach volleyball games, and a drawer full of funeral programs. Add to this that Briggs's charms don't work on Abigail, the girl next door. Is he willing to take a risk, and become who he truly is?

While this coming of age story had funny moments, I thought it was simplistic and unbelievable.
