Why EDEN LAKE should be on your must-read list for 2011

September 25, 2010

Jane Roper’s forthcoming Eden Lake is scoring high praise from some noteworthy authors:

“As a kid I lasted one week at summer camp, but at EDEN LAKE I overcame my phobia — I loved every second of my time there! This is due to the quirky, warm, funny, quixotic crew you’ll meet in these pages and the compassionate yet sharply observed story of a family examining and reassembling itself after a father’s death. I’ll be revisiting EDEN LAKE many times.”

Jenna Blum, bestselling author of Those Who Save Us and The Stormchasers

Anyone who’s ever experienced the sweet tumult of summer camp is hereby ordered to read Eden Lake immediately. In fact, even if you’ve never been to camp, this book should go on your must-read list. Jane Roper has written a wise, sexy novel that fearlessly probes the particulars of desire and loss. It’s a sheer delight — as irresistible as a s’more.
