May B: A Novel-in-Verse

Middle School Fiction

G/A Rose, Caroline Starr. May B: A Novel-in-Verse. Random House, 2012. 240p. 978-1-58246-393-3. 15.99.

Set in early 20th century Kansas, this novel-in-verse centers around 12-year-old May who is sent to work for a family 15 miles away from her own home. But 15 miles away might as well be across the country in the desolate farmlands of Kansas during this time period. When the family doesn’t return home one day, May must do what she can to survive alone through the winter. Great book for reluctant readers, historical fiction fans and especially Laura Ingalls Wilder fans. Loren Spector, LAPL, Felipe de Neve
