not for me

— feeling cry
The May Queen - Helen Irene Young

May knew there was safety in keeping her mouth shut when Ma got in one of her fits- cast often when the girls came in after curfew or had been out robbing eggs. Ma said when Pa came home May would get it. Sophie screamed she would leave and Ma said she figured Sophie would. Sophie is Ma’s older sister and had been banished from their home.

This book just didn’t make a lot of sense to me and it definitely did not hold my attention’ It was hard to figure out what was going on. I didn’t end up finishing this book just wasn’t for me. I am sure someone else will enjoy it just not me.
