Making Sense of Leadership: Exploring the Five Key Roles Used by Effective Leaders gA uick read it s lyrical about a youngirl left on her own in very difficult circumstances I liked the parallels between May s struggle to survive and her struggle to read I love stories in verse therefore I wasn t much surprised when I ended up enjoying May B a whole lot than I had expected to There s this cleanliness about the poetry that makes it whole lot than I had expected to There s this cleanliness about the poetry that makes it to read The thing with writing a story in verse is that you have to be very careful about the details you put and the ones you leave out Because of the structure you cannot as you would in prose form novels describe things to the minute detail I felt that May B very successfully portrayed Mavis and the situation she found herself in while still managing to make her a character that one could empathize with And relate to Mavis s desire to read and to eventually teach are particularly poignant especially when the modern reader realizes that the possibility of it occurring is little to one I also really liked how the changing climate is iven consideration and Mavis *s feelings as she realizes that she has been abandoned All in all this is a beautiful *feelings as she realizes that she has been abandoned All in all this is a beautiful with beautiful elouent poetry If you want a limpse of a Gandhi Churchill: The Epic Rivalry that Destroyed an Empire and Forged Our Age girl defying all odds to survive you shouldive May B a try I recommend it anyway May B is an unlikely hero a 12 year old Les Innocents girl with a learning disability fending for herself during a harsh prairie winter In the wrong hands the story could tend toward melodrama Or it could just plain be boring Fortunately this story is neitherMay s story unfolds in verse The style works well in this book emphasizing the stark prairie and the simplicity of of May s every day existence Author Caroline Starr Rose manages to weave in plenty of historical details adding another rich layer to the story without bogging down any of the actionWhile historical fiction might be a hard sell for some young readers telling the story in verse makes it a uick read Reminiscent of the Little House books without the heft May B is a wonderful debut from aifted author The author Caroline Rose Starr was named Publishers Weekly Flying Start Author for this book May B She lives in New Mexico with her husband and two sons She spent May B She lives in New Mexico with her husband and two sons She spent childhood in the deserts of Saudi Arabia and New Mexico Caroline even wrote poetry as a child The whole book is written in poetry This story is about a irl named is Mavis Elizabeth Betterly or May B May is twelve years old She lives with her Ma Pa and brother in a soddy in the.

Lad I persisted a moving story of a young irl facing adversity My daughter I were mesmerized
this book It is really to be read aloud And my daughter learned about dyslexia in a most subtle way We loved the brave patience of May If you like mighty irl books this is for you Review for workOh boy a verse historical fiction novel always the most popular item in any library Kidding aside it s hard for me to see this book oing out too much unless it s for the reluctant reader who has to Write A Report On a report on historical fiction book over 200 pages long Because the verse leaves so much white space the text density here is like a Frog and Toad book yet it comes to a cool 225 pages in the ARC This book had too many themes swirling in the mix The Lives of Stay-at-Home Fathers: Masculinity, Carework and Fatherhood in the United States gender disparity prairie identity reaching the horizon loneliness on the prairie as a metaphor for reading difficulties texts within the text paralleling May s emotions May s nickname May s desire to become a teacher flashbacks to her previous teachers flashbacks to her dares with her brotherabout half of those things could be cut out with no loss to the book Some may find the presence of all that self consciously literary stuff distinguished I found it cluttered On the plus side it s airl s survival story with details about how she ets by alone in a sod house in winter and a sympathetic portrayal of a irl with dyslexia Overall I would say that the negatives and positives even out to make it an additional purchase Given that Kirkus ave it a starred review which isn t peanuts some libraries may want it Historical fiction in verse is hard to carry off and ultimately I compare everything to Out of the Dust which is most unfair on my part I think Rose s job was even difficult because so much of her book deals with one character alone but what a strong character May is May s fight for survival alone on the prairie is fascinating enough but the flashbacks into her learning difficulties when she was at school make the character even relatable and intriguing I think Rose definitely will appeal to the Little House crowd that she definitely will appeal to the Little House crowd that she reaching for and I do believe this one is award worthy I won t ive a synopsis because others have done that already What I will say is that this is one amazing book Seriously The language is so sparse yet the visuals are so 1,000 Awesome Writing Prompts great The emotion palatable The character fully developed I very much enjoyed MAY B Will recommend highly to others including reluctant readers.
