What I liked: This book is about a girl named, yes, May Bird. She falls into a lake, which is actually a portal to another realm. A realm with ghosts, ghouls, and demons. Overrun by an evil spirit, the Ever After is slowly falling into danger. Read this intruiging story, and the many adventures of Ether to find the Book of the Dead, which holds the future to the universe and her way back home.
May Bird and the Ever After is also filled with a lot of lovable and despicable characters, but rememberable all the same. Such as Pumpkin, Alister, and of course, Somber Kitty. A uniquely fun story that you won’t find every day; it compells you to turn every page. A time passer that will make you want to pass the time with.
Didn’t like: In some parts you start to think its getting to dark and gloomy, but then something shocking happens. Every chapter! There’s nothing really bad about this book in my opinion.
Additional: Great descriptive writing that is easy to read at the same time.
Recommend for: All ages, mostly young teens.
