The effect of any lake, especially the Great Lakes, in modifying the weather in nearby areas It?s the summer after his senior year, and driven, focused Briggs Henry is ready to leave behind his ex-girlfriend, his comically aggressive grandmother, and his parents? money troubles for Lake Michigan and its miles of sandy beaches. He?s lined up a summer job working as a personal assistant and living in a gorgeous Victorian on the water-exactly the kind of house Briggs plans to buy his parents once he?s a multi-millionaire. But when he arrives, his boss, the eccentric Mrs. Bosic, tells him to get dressed for her funeral. Uh . . .
