Eula, Idaho, has never seen a battle, an earthquake, or a Democrat in City Hall. Yet life here is anything but simple.
Lina's angry son JesUs has recently returned to the trailer park after living with wealthy white foster parents. Her younger son Enrique and his best friend, Gene--who lives in a neighboring trailer with his very Christian mother, Connie--are misfits who cling to their studies in the face of schoolyard cruelties. Determined to win the statewide science fair, Enrique and Gene devise an experiment involving "lake overturn," a phenomenon in which deadly gases erupt from a lake's depths. In their endeavor to discover if Eula could suffer from such an event, the boys come into contact with an odd assortment of locals--including a frail-hearted school principal with grand ambitions, a lonely lawyer who finds new love as his wife is dying, and a woman who decides to escape a life of exploitation and addiction by becoming a surrogate mother.
With sweeping perspective and a Victorian wealth of character, "Lake Overturn" exposes small-town America in all its beauty and treachery, sunshine and secrets.
