Book #33 Missing May

I’m going to have to hurry if I’m going to finish 52 books by the end of December!! Nothing like a deadline to make me get myself in gear. Actually, I’ve been “in gear” so much that I haven’t had time to read. I needed a quick, interesting book to get me back on track. When at the library, I picked up Missing May by Cynthia Rylant. It was the 1993 Newbery winner, so I knew it would be good.

It was a sweet story about a twelve-year-old girl named Summer. Summer was orphaned at an early age and passed around from family member to family member before finding her way home to Ob and May. Ob and May didn’t have much in the way of money, but they gave Summer all the love one little girl could stand. when May suddenly dies, Summer and Ob are left to find their way through sorrow and grief.

It’s a sad, simple, sweet story, and one that leaves you feeling like they are going to be okay after all.
