Three Bird Summer

author: Sara St. Antoine

For as long as he can remember, Adam and his parents have spent their summers at his grandmother’s rustic cabin on Three Bird Lake. But this year will be different. There will be no rowdy cousins running around tormenting Adam. There will be no Uncle John or Aunt Jean. And there'll be no Dad to fight with Mom. This year, the lake will belong just to Adam.
But then Adam meets Alice, the girl next door, who seems to want to become friends. Alice looks just like the aloof, popular girls back home—what could he and she possibly have in common?
Turns out, Alice isn't like the girls back home. She's frank, funny, and eager for adventure. And when Adam's grandma starts to leave strange notes in his room—notes that hint at a hidden treasure somewhere at the lake and a love from long ago—Alice is the one person he can rely on to help solve the mysteries of Three Bird Lake.

An introspective boy and an adventurous girl uncover a poignant family mystery during a summer on the shores of Three Bird Lake.

author’s comments:
Sara St. Antoine was eight years old when she first paddled a canoe—on the Huron River in her hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Within moments, she struck an overhanging tree branch and the canoe capsized. Since then, she has paddled lakes and rivers from Temagami, Ontario, to the Boundary Waters of Minnesota. "For all that," she says, "I'm still better at soaking up the scenery from the bow of a canoe than steering a straight course from the stern." She is the editor of the Stories from Where We Live series, anthologies of literature from different regions of North America, and lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with her husband and two daughters.
