Overview
The first in a new series by Lauren Kate, the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of the Fallen series, TEARDROP is an epic saga of heart-stopping romance, devastating secrets, and dark magic . . . a world where everything you love can be washed away.
Never, ever cry. . . . Eureka Boudreaux's mother drilled that rule into her daughter years ago. But now her mother is gone, and everywhere Eureka goes he is there: Ander, the tall, pale blond boy who seems to know things he shouldn't, who tells Eureka she is in grave danger, who comes closer to making her cry than anyone has before.
But Ander doesn't know Eureka's darkest secret: ever since her mother drowned in a freak accident, Eureka wishes she were dead, too. She has little left that she cares about, just her oldest friend, Brooks, and a strange inheritance--a locket, a letter, a mysterious stone, and an ancient book no one understands. The book contains a haunting tale about a girl who got her heart broken and cried an entire continent into the sea. Eureka is about to discover that the ancient tale is more than a story, that Ander might be telling the truth . . . and that her life has far darker undercurrents than she ever imagined.

Like its bayou setting, this trilogy opener from Kate is meandering and deceptive, full of odd inlets. Some are intriguing, like 17-year-old Eureka Boudreaux’s platonic friendship with Brooks, a boy she’s known her whole life. Others less so, like the winking references in the names of Eureka’s rival, Maya Cayce, and the psychic Madame Blavatsky. Still, patient readers may find Eureka’s slowly unfolding tale worth the time. She’s the fragile survivor of a “rogue wave” that drowned her mother, Diana, leaving Eureka physically broken and suicidal. Her memories of Diana don’t square with her assertions that they had a wonderful relationship—she recalls being slapped, ignored, and left behind when Diana divorced Eureka’s father. A self-described Stoic, Eureka doesn’t want to share these memories with her family, friends, or therapists. But that stoicism is shattered by Ander, a blond stranger whose arrival launches a gradual cascade of realization that give Eureka a new perception of who she is. Fans of Kate’s popular Fallen series will find a similar blend of supernatural romance, mystery, and destiny. Ages 12–up. Agent: Michael Stearns and Ted Malawer, the Inkhouse. (Oct.)
