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. This year, the lake will belong just to Adam . . . and, apparently, Alice, the girl next door. Alice seems to want Adam’s friendship, but she looks just like the aloof, popular girls back home — what could they possibly have in common? 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.

“This spirited novel seamlessly combines endings and beginnings against the beautiful backdrop of a lake in summer.” — Kirkus Reviews

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.
