hates her life. Her family has moved from the only home she has ever
known and taken her away from her best friend in the world. Now,
she, her brother, and parents are living in a small college town in Tennessee.
There is one interesting thing though. A girl named May. May
dresses in old fashioned clothes and always seems to show up just when
Ariadne is most desperate for attention. But who is she? And
why doesn’t anyone else in the family seem to notice her? And the
riddle…May says she lives somewhere that is “warm in winter and cold in
summer.” How can that be? Ariadne has just enough Sherlock
Holmes in her to try to find out what is so mysterious about May and some
of the people in the town she lives in. Join Ariadne in her investigation
of a most unsettling mystery. Read Cold in Summer by Tracy Barrett.
