Publisher Comments:

TEARDROP launches a new series from Lauren Kate, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling FALLEN series. Haunting, mysterious, romantic and steeped in mythology, TEARDROP is the epic saga of Eureka Boudreaux, a 17-year old Louisiana girl whose tears have the power to raise the lost continent of Atlantis . . .  a world where everything you love can be washed away.  With the international phenomenon FALLEN, Lauren Kate has captured the hearts and imaginations of readers all over the world, with rights sold in 33 countries and counting.

Never, ever cry. . . .

Eureka Boudreaux’s mother drilled that rule into her daughter years ago. But now her mother is gone, and everywhere Eureka goes he is there: Ander, the tall, pale blond boy who seems to know things he shouldn’t, who tells Eureka she is in grave danger, who comes closer to making her cry than anyone has before.

   But Ander doesn’t know Eureka’s darkest secret: ever since her mother drowned in a freak accident, Eureka wishes she were dead, too. She has little left that she cares about, just her oldest friend, Brooks, and a strange inheritance—a locket, a letter, a mysterious stone, and an ancient book no one understands. The book contains a haunting tale about a girl who got her heart broken and cried an entire continent into the sea—and something about the story is uncannily familiar.

   Eureka is about to discover that the ancient tale is more than a story, that Ander might be telling the truth . . . and that her life has far darker undercurrents than she ever imagined.

Review:

"In this first book in Kate's new series, set in the bayou, 17-year-old Eureka Boudreaux wishes she were dead, after the death of her mother. But with a mysterious inheritance and a very special power — the ability to raise the lost city of Atlantis with her tears — Eureka embarks on an adventure of epic proportions. Narrator Spencer breathes life into this mysterious tale. Her reading is straightforward but effective, her tone soft, and her pacing perfect. Spencer ably captures the essence of the characters, lending them suitable voices. Listeners — particularly fans of the genre — will find this a fun and rousing audiobook. Ages 12 — up. A Delacorte hardcover. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
