    “A beautifully crafted, emotional portrait of a Cape Cod family whose teenage daughter may not be the only one out of options. The austere beauty of the off-season landscape seems to bring out hard truths and scour away secrets. I loved it.” —Helen Simonson, author of Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand and The Summer Before the War 


    Vance Lake is broke, jobless, and recently dumped. When he takes refuge at his twin brother Craig’s house on Cape Cod, he finds himself smack in the middle of a crisis that would test the bonds of even the most cohesive family, let alone the Lakes: seventeen-year-old Amanda is pregnant. Craig is heartbroken and full of rage, his exasperated wife, Gina, is on the brink of an affair, and Amanda is indignant, ashamed, and very, very scared. 

    Told in alternating points of view, The News from the End of the World follows one family into a crucible of pent-up resentments, old and new secrets, and memories long buried. Only by coming to terms with their pasts, both as individuals and together, do they stand a chance of emerging intact.
