Casey, Tyndall, and Devon—kids from Southern Hollow subdivision—have been falling in and out of love with each other, and always at the wrong time. It’s a Thursday night in September 2019, their senior year. Anything seems possible. And Casey’s band, New Wave Vultures, packs them in on teen night at the Cedar Shake, a club on the square in downtown Springfield, Missouri. While all three feel trapped in the Ozarks, the coming pandemic is about to show them the grinding limits of true confinement and the power of music, love, friendship, and courage.

Praise for The Lakes of Southern Hollow, by Steve Yates:


This hard-hitting gut punch of a novel blew me away. Think Ozark meets Daisy Jones and the Six with an unlikely heroine Tyndall, on the autism spectrum, who saves lives at Saint Martin’s Hospital and elsewhere. The Lakes of Southern Hollow is ultimately an uplifting story about a wild group of forever friends struggling with addiction, fame, sexual longing, mental illness, a pandemic, Trumpers, evangelical zealots, and finally—Lord help them—redemption.

—Margaret McMullan, author of Sources of Light


In Steve Yates’ The Lakes of Southern Hollow, we see characters strive, struggle, and wish. Above all, Yates has written characters we want to keep reading. There’s real electricity here—in the pizazz of the dialogue and in the lilt of the musical prose.The Lakes of Southern Hollow is told with humor and fire.

—Olivia Clare Friedman, author of Here Lies

    Three teens coming of age on the leading edge of the COVID pandemic. Of course their lives are complicated. I loved Tyndall, she’s on the autism spectrum, and Steve Yates writes her so well.
