Michelle (missmeesh) I have been looking for this book for awhile...and with very little success.
I believe that it had a yellow cover, with a girl on it with braids. It was a children's/YA book.
From what I can remember, that summer was very, very cold, snow killed all of the crops, and her mother was pregnant. I do believe that she gives birth at the beginning at the book, in the middle of a snowstorm in July.
I also remember her getting lost and having to work in a shop like a general store after she fell off of the wagon or something like that? She also had a friend that they were really close until they had a fall out. I think. I could be mixing this up with another book, but any suggestions are wonderful.

M— | 379 comments It sounds like your book was based on the Year Without a Summer historic event, and it sounds fascinating. I hope you find it!

Michelle (missmeesh) I am pretty sure that yes, it was based on this event.

I remember something about people saying that sunspots were behind it too, thought that was never really proven. And I doubt that it was the real cause.

But thank you.

Frozen Summer by Mary Jane Auch?

Michelle (missmeesh) Yes yes YES! That is it! You think with such an obvious title I would be able to find it, but I just couldn't get it.
Thanks so much!
