About the Author
Jodi Lynn Anderson is the bestselling author of several critically acclaimed books for young people, including Tiger Lily and the May Bird trilogy. She lives with her husband and son in Asheville, North Carolina, a city that appears to have been founded by elves.
In this first tale of a gripping new trilogy, we meet May Bird; her closest companion, Somber Kitty; and a variety of ghosts, ghouls, and specters. May Bird, a shy loner, finds adventure and companionship in the woods surrounding her beloved West Virginia home. In one of her sojourns into the woods, May inadvertently falls through a portal and ends up in the strange and frightening Ever After. Bernadette Dunne's performance is spellbinding. She brings all the characters to life, giving each one a voice unique to his or her personality as she plunges listeners into this strange new fantasy land. Bring on Book Two!

May likes to go snooping around in old buildings looking for treasure, and one day she finds a hidden letter dating back to 1951, which somehow has her name on it. The envelope contains a letter and a map, and soon May is setting off across the Endless Briers towards a supposedly non-existent lake. Naturally she finds the lake, and falls in, and when she gets out she can see dead people, supposedly with her new-found sixth sense. For some reason she returns to the lake, and enters the Ever After, filled with ghosts, specters and other nasty things that go bump in the night.
Assisted by her ghostly guardian, Pumpkin, she embarks on a quest to find the Book of the Dead, which is supposed to tell her how to get home again, as well as the meaning of life and everything else, but to get it she must escape the clutches of the evil Bo Cleevil, his pal the Boogeyman and his dogs, and the gross ghouls who guard the book.
Confusing in places, gross in others, but highly imaginative, this one is for kids with slightly morbid tendencies.

Thankfully I finally remembered the name and purchased all three books used in very good condition. I did recieve a tracking item with this purchase and I do recomend this book for those with an enjoyment of occult.
It has mild cliches but it's nothing over done where as it's unbearable to read. I love this book and I can't wait to finish it.
Book series: 5/5
Seller: 4/5 Silver Arch Books- Their service was very good! However, I am taking off a short rating due to the fact that they did not include a tracking number/ tracking services.
