    In the wake of a disastrous affair with her married archeology professor, brilliant Wilhelmina Cooper arrives back at the doorstep of her hippie mother-turned-born-again-Christian's house in Templeton, New York - a storybook town her ancestors founded on the shores of Lake Glimmerglass. Upon her arrival, a prehistoric monster surfaces in the lake, bringing a feeding frenzy to the quiet town. And Willie learns she has a mystery father her mother has kept secret for Willie's entire life.

    What other book might you compare Monsters of Templeton to and why?

    It reminded me of "100 Years of Solitude" in the way it followed one family and place over many generations, and with the matter-of-fact acceptance of supernatural occurrences.
