Summary: (from goodreads) Jonah is at Yellow Lake to get in touch with his Ojibwe heritage. Peter has come from England to bury a loc of his mother's hair--her final request. Ett'a on the run from her mom's creepy boyfriend and his criminal friends. As the three take shelter in a cabin by the shore of the lake, they soon understand that they have stumbled onto the scene of a horrifying crime. Will they leave the lake alive?

The quest to find oneself always makes for a good story. Add in a little drama and some intense thrill, then you have yourself a great novel. At Yellow Lake has all these attributes which lends to the enriched drama displayed in the novel. The author, Jane McLoughlin does a wonderful job of showing the emotion and inter turmoil of the characters. As you read the book, you can't help but to have a sense of sympathy for the main characters. In At yellow Lake we get to know three teenagers, each dealing with their own inner demons. Each one comes from different walks of life. They come together to a place which is rooted in all them, where their lives will change forever. Having to face tragedies that no one should go through, each character struggles to find peace within their restless souls. The author has a great writing style. The character's problems are believable and could happen to anyone. This was a very intense novel that was a pleasure to read. The characters are as real as it gets and the storyline flows without a bump. In conclusion, books that make a guy feel sympathy are hard to come by. So it's impressive to find such a hard hitting novel that connects with all types of people and does just that!
