This book made me feel very emotional. It showed me how someone may cope with the loss of someone in their family or a good friend. It made me feel happy, but on the other hand, it made me feel sad because throughout the book I could feel Summer and Ob's grief over the death of May. Personally, my favorite part was when Cleatus came in with his briefcase full of pictures. He was a funny character with his own story and that made me laugh. When I read this book I was touched to see how much they loved and missed May. When my grandpa, uncle, and grandma died in the same year I kind of felt like Summer. I still miss them just like Summer and Ob still miss May.
I would recommend anyone over the age of 10 to read this story about Missing May. This story is very touching, but sometimes funny, too. I think someone who just lost a member of their family should read this book. It might help them deal with the loss and find comfort. May's spirit brings Summer and Ob a lot of happiness. Read this book and you will understand why.
