About the Story:

The Lake Effect touches on that poignant event in everyone’s life when they transition into adulthood. At some point in a person’s life, between ages 22 and 32, there is a seminal event that makes you who you are. Blake craftily weaves multiple scenarios from a formerly close-knit group of college acquaintances into his well-written testimonial to the true meaning of The Lake Effect.

When a lake effect snowstorm forces a close-knit group of college students to spend a night in a dorm lounge, one friend shares a theory - everyone has a distinct moment in their life that transforms them into adults. The youthful idealists dismiss the concept, but 15 years later the memory challenges one to travel across the country, renew relationships and chronicle the Lake Effect moments of those present on that snowy evening so long ago. His encounters may shock, enlighten, even make you laugh and cause you to ask "What was your moment?'' Reading The Lake Effect won't change your life but will remind you what did.
