The Lovereading4Kids comment
June 2012 Debut of the Month. Full of tension, this is a gripping debut novel with vibrant characters caught up in a complex interweaving of stories all of which are played out on the faraway shores of Yellow Lake. Etta finds the little cabin on the shores of Yellow Lake when she runs away from her mother’s new boyfriend and his criminal habits; Peter heads for the cabin by Yellow Lake from England to fulfil his mother’s dying wish by burying a lock of her hair; Jonah is camping by the Lake to get in touch with his Native Indian roots. Each has a poignant and touching story to tell and the strong setting of Yellow Lake gives it a great sense of place.
At Yellow Lake by Jane McLoughlin
Etta, Peter and Jonah all find themselves at a cabin by the shore of Yellow Lake, and flung together in the terrifying series of events that follows. As the three take shelter in the cabin, finding surprising solace in each other's company, they soon realise that they have inadvertently stumbled onto the scene of a horrifying crime - and Kyle and his cronies have no intention of letting them escape. A sparkling debut from new teen author, Jane McLoughlin, At Yellow Lake will keep readers gripped until the final page.
"A page turning story which oozes menace. A fantastic debut and a treat for Young Adult readers." Anne Cassidy, award-winning author of Looking for JJ
