Looking for the free Summer Reading Chart? Grab it here! The Boston Jane series did that for me. I was familiar, of course, with Jennifer L. I downloaded the first Boston Jane on my Kindle and plowed through it during our first couple of days in Italy a couple of weeks ago. Happily, my library had Kindle versions of the next two books in the series, Wilderness Days and The Claim , so I could download them from overseas and I finished them all before we came home.

Holm Our Only May Amelia returns to the frontier by way of Philadelphia in this fast-paced second novel about a blossoming society lady who must surrender etiquette in order to survive. The enormously likable and irrepressible year-old narrator Jane recounts her childhood crush on her father's apprentice William, which caused her, at age 11, to trade her tomboyish spitting and cherry pie—eating for proper deportment and embroidery lessons at Miss Hepplewhite's Young Ladies Academy. As Jane makes her way to the Oregon territory to marry William, Holm humorously juxtaposes Miss Hepplewhite's lessons with the reality of life at sea and on the frontier in Such advice as travelers must "dress plainly and pack lightly" does not seem to apply: Jane reflects, "She had been rather remiss in mentioning any hints on killing fleas, avoiding rats, bathing with seawater, or being seasick. Jane named Boston Jane by the local Chinook Indians must share a cabin with unkempt, tobacco-chewing men and make herself useful by cooking, washing and mending rather than supervising servants or pouring tea.
