May Bird feels uncomfortable at school due to the taunts and teasing from the kids who don't understand her. For her, the woods are a comfortable place, where she can be a brave warrior princess and Somber Kitty, her cat, her guardian.

When May accidentally falls into the lake, she finds herself in another world when she climbs out. Not comfortable, like the woods, but dangerous and filled with very strange people. There is a blue glow to the place and the people don't seem to be real. In fact, they seem to glide a few inches above the ground when they move, and can appear, disappear and walk through walls.

She is befriended by Pumpkin, a house ghost who is even more timid than May feels. He is to accompany her on a quest to get to the Far North to help the Lady of the North, per her letter of request. A letter that May found in a dusty old book.

May must not be discovered by any of the ghouls, ghosts, goblins and other strange creatures that inhabit this strange world. Especially the Bogey and his Shuck dogs as he will make May disappear.

During this journey, May finds that she does have courage and can do things. She also finds friends who care about her.

I am not a big fantasy reader, but I will definitely look for the other books in the series so I can read them to find out what else happens to May. ( )

Kamari liked that the character was so adventurous and that she met so many people.

I liked it. I appreciated that non-human animals were described positively and respectfully (not usual in my experience). I liked May's character. I liked the bizarre friendly 'ghost', and I felt I really knew Sombre Kitty. A satisfying read. Would recommend for those who like their gothic spooky but lite. ( )

This was part of Sunshine State books series. I loved the fantasy aspect and wonder that reminded me of Alice in Wonderland. I could relate to the main character. ( )

This book is amazing. No doubts, no exceptions. It's hard to imagine that this book came out so long ago, yet surpasses many young adult novels to date. Its dark, its gross, its a young child's nightmare, and you know what. I love this book. It's not filled with swears, its not gory to the core. Instead its something more. A wondrous book filled with memorable characters, May Bird and The Ever After has one of the most original and darkest setting to date. Not to mention its sequels are sequels done right.

May Bird is a young girl who doesn't seem to fit in right with the social world. She enjoys exploring her woods and pretending she's a warrior princess in her black bathing suit. Along with her hairless cat, she finds a mystical portal to the underworld, called The Ever After, in her woods. From there, she is thrown into the world of ghouls, ghosts, goblins, and other monsters children hide from at night. She then meets her guardian spirit, Pumpkin, and takes her on an amazing adventure, meeting all sorts of people, who help along the way to get this little girl back home. Pretty cool right? I was enthralled with this story for the longest time, and I still am. It made you want to be a part of her adventure through the land of the afterlife. The characters and actions never cease to amaze me, and show great development, most notably, May, as she turns into a frightened young girl, into a strong willed warrior.

I cannot reccomend this series enough. It's one of the most underrated novels, let alone series, and should be defiantly read sometime in your lifetime. It's dark, humorous, and portrays characters that we can relate to. I've been meaning to do this review for the longest time, and now I can proudly say this is my favorite book series of my life so far. So go read it. Like now. It's that good.
