Missing May

Written by Cynthia Rylant
After Summer’s mother dies, she didn’t fit in anywhere – until she came to live with her older Aunt May and Uncle Ob in their mountain community. Six years later, Summer is twelve and her Aunt May passes away leaving everyone feeling an incredible sense of loss.  How do they discover that May will always be a part of their lives and transform their world?  This moving story is beautifully written and a gem for anyone who has experienced loss and found a way to overcome it while never forgetting the person that they treasured.
