May Bird makes her way out of the ghostly Ever After in the second book of a dazzling trilogy from "New York Times "bestselling author Jodi Lynn Anderson.
A fearful and fantastic realm located among the stars, the Ever After is full of phantoms and poltergeists, ghouls and goblins, and all manner of things that go bump in the night. And then there is May Bird. She wants to get home to Earth, but to do so she must locate the mysterious Lady of North Farm, who lives in a cold, forbidding land that even the spooks find spooky.
Along the way, she and her friends — Pumpkin, Beatrice, Fabbio, and Somber Kitty — encounter all sorts of places and ghosts, from the terrifying to the hilarious. And although there is no avoiding villains like the Bogey and the Ever After's terribly evil ruler, Bo Cleevil, with a little luck the friends might just make it to the Lady.
[Among the Stars was originally published as May Bird Among the Stars and now features an updated cover and title.]
