Ah yes, the time of year where the snow suddenly turns into lots of rain and flooding. The best part? We’re supposed to get snow again this weekend. We went from over a foot of snow last weekend to roads closing due to flooding last night. Minnesota is an odd place to live when it comes to weather.

THE MISSING SEASON – Gillian French (Releasing May 21st, 2019)
Last year I read THE LIES THEY TELL and really enjoyed it! Can’t wait to see what she has in store for us this time.
Here’s the synopsis:
Whenever another kid goes missing in October, the Pender kids know what is really behind it: a horrific monster out in the marshes they have named the Mumbler.
That’s what Clara’s new crew tells her when she moves to town: Bree and Sage, who take her under their wing; spirited Trace, who has taken the lead on this year’s Halloween prank war; and magnetic Kincaid, whose devil-may-care attitude and air of mystery are impossible for Clara to resist.
Clara doesn’t actually believe in the Mumbler. But as Halloween gets closer and tensions build in the town, it’s hard to shake the feeling that there really is something dark and dangerous in Pender, lurking in the shadows, waiting to bring the stories to life.
