Little Girls in Pretty Boxes by Joan Ryan – 1995 book about the influence of gymnastics and figure skating on the girls who practice them.

Improper Relations by Janet Mullany – Humorous regency romance. I love funny books, but there are so few of them! I’m always, always on the look-out for more.

Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez – Historical fiction. “An ambitious and startling debut novel that follows the lives of four women at a resort popular among slaveholders who bring their enslaved mistresses.” Tell me that doesn’t sound powerful. Don’t miss the NPR interview halfway down the page.
