About This Book
Quiet, quirky May Bird discovers a ghostly dimension in this otherworldly adventure from "New York Times "bestselling author Jodi Lynn Anderson.
Meet May Bird: a very shy, very precocious young girl who wants nothing more than to live in a world where she's accepted and loved. One day while walking in the woods she finds that world — or falls into it, really. Through a pond, May enters the Ever After, a world of ghosts.
Here, towns glow blue beneath zipping stars and the people — are they really people? — walk through walls. Here, the Book of the Dead holds the answers to everything in the universe. And here, if May is discovered, the horrifyingly evil Bo Cleevil will turn her into nothing. May Bird must get out. Fast.
As May journeys through fantastic lands, she gathers an unusual group of new friends who join together to overcome Bo Cleevil and find the way back home.
[The Ever After was originally published as and now features an updated cover and title.]
