Although the title makes it sound like a horror story, this book is actually the sad story of the summer Meg's older sister Molly dies of leukaemia.

As an adult reader, Meg is so naive for so long about her sisters illness... but maybe her denial is the point of the story. (It's not the story the book is telling, but I found it hard that her loving and intelligent parents try to shelter her by shutting her out of what is going on.)

The central sad story is surrounded by a sweet host of other characters - Meg's dad (writing his academic book), Meg's mum (simple and sweet and sewing a quilt), Will (their landlord, but a dear friend and mentor to Meg) and Ben and Maria, idealistic home birthers. It is a bit 'babies are the happy ending', but it's very light touch - the real ending is to see and be seen, and know and accept that bad things are going to happen. ( )

Thirteen year old Meg tells the story of the illness and death from leukemia of Molly, her older sister.

Thirteen-year-old Meg and her sister Molly couldn't be more different. Molly is beautiful and popular, and Meg is brainy and introverted. Accepting these differences has always been difficult for Meg. When Molly falls ill, however, Meg must learn not only to accept Molly and her life, but to accept death. (Amazon)

Golly! I had this book on my mind recently for some reason. I probably read it about 30 years ago but thinking about it and all the other Lois Lowry books I read way back when (I freakin' LOVED the Anastasia series) made me realize how much I have ALWAYS loved reading. Sure, my taste has morphed a great deal from the angsty middle grade fiction that is A Summer to Die but that tingle felt when opening a new book, the excitement from walking into a library/bookstore, and general PASSION for all things literary are still there. I like to think authors like Lois Lowry, Mildred D. Taylor, Ellen Conford, Judy Blume, Beaverly Cleary, Anne M. Martin, Barthe DeClements, and Louis Sachar are largely responsible for very early in life shaping my love of books.
I only vaguely remember the plot of A Summer to Die but I do recall being deeply engrossed and even staying up late one night to finish reading it with the door closed and a flashlight under the covers because my dad had yelled at me for the 4th time "Go to bed, tomorrow is a school day!". Parents, right? Go to bed? Are you nuts? I still have 45 pages to go! A great read! ( )

I remember reading this book. It had some wonderful symbolism, but I didn't realize it was a Lois Lowry book. I always think about the mother in the story making a quilt from Meg's old clothes because I will probably do the same with Ollie's. This book gave me that idea so long ago. ( )
