Description

The new girl in town meets a mysterious old-fashioned girl who can't seem to find her way home.

"The girl didn't say anything. Her face held no expression.""Ariadne shivered. It was cool in the shade, and her hair was still wet."""Hello," Ariadne said. No answer. "Um--I was just taking a walk. Is this your property?" Still nothing. She took a step toward the girl and stumbled on a fallen branch. She caught her balance and looked back at the tree, but no one was there. ""The girl had vanished."

It's bad enough that Ariadne's family just moved to a tiny boring town in the middle of nowhere. But worst of all is that she's so far away from her best friend. The kids in Dobbin seem nice enough, but none of them really understands how lost and unhappy Ariadne feels.

None, that is, but May Butler. She's an odd, quiet person who wears the strangest old-fashioned clothes and has a spooky habit of appearing and disappearing in the blink of an eye. Despite their differences, there is a bond between the two girls. May, too, knows what it's like to feel lost.

"Cold in Summer" is a 2004 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
