The Wicked Boy by Kate Summerscale

In 1857, a child was convicted of murdering his mother after her body was found decomposing in their home. This lurid point of entry belies a fascinating and surprisingly compassionate examination of a crime that gripped Victorian London. Like the best crime narratives, its focus is not on the crime itself, but on the extraordinary ways it shaped the lives left in its wake. - Katherine

The Landscapes of Anne of Green Gables by Catherine Reid

This book is a beautiful portrait of Prince Edward Island and the forests, meadows, and fields that inspired Anne. Drawing from Montgomery’s archives, her letters and journal entries are interwoven with lush photographs of the place she called home. If you can’t visit Prince Edward Island yourself, this book is the next best thing. - Katherine

Garden Wild by Andre Baranowski

My favorite gardens are the wild, untamed ones that barely look like gardens at all, the gardens that reflect their local environment instead of fighting against it. This book is a celebration of just that. Andre Baranowski’s beautiful photographs take you on a tour of twelve gorgeous gardens that might finally inspire you to ditch your lawn for good. - Katherine

To Night Owl from Dogfish by Holly Goldberg & Meg Wolitzer

As anyone familiar with The Parent Trap will tell you, two very different girls from opposite ends of the country brought together at summer camp for some sisterly bonding is a recipe for hijinks. A modern update on an old formula, this funny, fast-paced adventure becomes a sweet, poignant tale about friendship and family. - Katherine

Ninth Street Women by Mary Gabriel

Reading this book feels like a vindication; long overlooked, the women of abstract expressionism are revealed not just as muses and supporting players, but the founders of a movement. Don't let the size intimidate you; Gabriel's use of interviews and firsthand accounts takes what could be a dense tome down to a personal scale that feels intimate to read despite its scope. - Katherine

An American Childhood by Annie Dillard

This memoir is an ode to clever, curious girls who strain against the path. Dillard approached childhood with a furious joy, consuming everything her quiet upbringing offered with an infectious vitality. "I read some few books with such reverence," Dillard writes, "I didn't close them at the finish, but only moved the pile of pages back to the start." I felt the same. - Katherine
