May B. is a novel by Caroline Starr Rose that is about a girl named May B. May lives with Ma, Pa, and her brother, Hiram. Ma and Pa send May 15 miles away to live in a soddy with the Oblingers, people who May has never met. Her parents do this for the extra food and clothing, but she will only be there until Christmas. When Mrs. Oblinger runs away, and Mr. Oblinger sets out to find her, May is abandoned. She is certain they will come back, but they don’t. Winter comes, and May is on her own to get food and to stay warm. Will May B. survive the long winter? Read this book to find out.

May B. sells for around $10, and is geared for both girls and boys ages 7-10. I would rate this book 5 out of 5 long winters because I loved it and couldn’t stop reading it until I was finished.
