Back in December of 2011 I had on my show the first author from the Class of 2K12, the debut YA authors for 2012. It was a little strange having a 2k12 in 2011, but as we learned at the time it was due to the book originally planned for release in late 2011 being deferred to January 2012 (clear as mud…I know).
As we near the e3nd of 2012 it was great to have Caroline Star Rose back on the show to let us know how her year with the fantastic novel “May B” has gone since we last spoke to her.
The book has already won several awards and I believe firmly put Caroline on the YA/Mid Grade map, in fact just checking out Goodread’s for instance I see there are no less than 315 reviews for her book.
“May B” is a fast-paced novel, written in beautiful and riveting verse, a book that can and has been enjoyed by people of all ages.
About “May B" (taken from Caroline’s Web Site)
I watch the wagon
until I see nothing on the open plain.
For the first time ever,
I am alone.
May is helping out on a neighbor’s homestead—just until Christmas, her pa promises. But when a terrible turn of events leaves her all alone, she must try to find food and fuel—and courage—to make it through the approaching winter.
This gorgeous novel in verse by Caroline Starr Rose will transport you to the Kansas prairie—to the endless grassland, and to the suffocating closeness of the sod house where May is stranded.
May’s eloquent yet straightforward voice, and her bravery, determination, and willingness to risk it all will capture your heart.
As we found out during the show Caroline has continued to be busy not just with promoting
Based on the traditional rhyme, “Over in the Meadow” (due out 2014), this picture book follows the animals of the Louisiana shoreline as they prepare for and withstand a hurricane. Also she has been working on a children book.
