Have you ever cried so hard that Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River” started to play in the back of your head? Now, what if your tears were magical and could actually fill up a huge lake? Well, in Lauren Kate’s new book, Teardrop (which is also the name of the upcoming series), the main character Eureka Boudreaux’s salty sobs have the ability to drown an entire continent!
So, if Eureka has the destructive power to fully engulf nations with her waterworks, then how does she stop herself? See, here’s the thing… she has no idea her tears possess powers that can rival Poseidon, the Greek god of the ocean! Eureka’s mom drilled the rule “do not cry” into her daughter’s head years ago, but now that she’s dead, the urge to breakdown is stronger.
The only family valuables Eureka has left are a locket, a letter, a mysterious stone, and an ancient book that tells the haunting story of a heartbroken girl who cried an entire continent into the sea. What happens when a boy named Ander takes Eureka on a journey to discover that the ancient tale is more than just a fictional story? Her mother’s rule finally starts to make sense…
If Author Lauren Kate’s novel sounds like the kind of book you’d want to get your hands on, then Teardrop is available for sale October 22!
