The Trouble with May Amelia, by Jennifer L. Holm

The Trouble with May Amelia is about a girl named May Amelia Jackson who has six brothers and lives on the Nasal river in Washington. She is the only girl in her family and in her school, and the story is about her adventures on the family farm and her being the only girl in a family of eight kids. It takes place in 1900, and May Amelia does not like doing things that “a young lady should. “

It is a well written book, and there are many funny parts, however, the author adds in a bunch of weird capitalization, like she’ll be saying that Wilbert is Her Best Brother. She also doesn’t use quotation marks. For example, she would write, my mother said stay inside. I asked why, it’s not raining.

This was kind of weird, but overall it is a good book, and I would recommend it if you like Laura Ingalls Wilder books, or that genre of historical fiction.
