About the Author
An introspective boy and an adventurous girl uncover a poignant family mystery during a summer on the shores of Three Bird Lake.
Every year since he can remember, Adam has spent his summers at his grandmothers rustic cabin on Three Bird Lake. But this year is different. Dad wont be with them, and theres a new girl next door. Alice looks just like the aloof popular girls back home. But shes nice and easy to talk to, and she doesnt mind acting silly or being quiet and dock sitting. And when Adams grandma starts to leave strange notes in his room — notes that hint at a hidden treasure somewhere at the lake and a secret love from long ago — Alice is the one person Adam can rely on to help find answers.
