Staff Pick of the Week

Into the Bright Open by Cherie Dimaline: Mary Lennox didn't think about death until the day it knocked politely on her bedroom door and invited itself in. When a terrible accident leaves her orphaned at fifteen, she is sent to the wilderness of Georgian Bay to live with an uncle she's never met. At first she believes this new manor will be just like the one she left in Toronto: cold, isolating, and anything but cheerful, where staff is treated as staff and never like family. But as she slowly allows her heart to open, Mary comes to find that this strange place and its strange people—most of whom are Indigenous—may be what she can finally call home.

Why Molly Recommends it: This is a young adult ‘remix' offering from one of my favorite authors written with one of my favorite books as its basis. Expert magical background weaver Dimaline puts together a captivating retelling of The Secret Garden, set in Ontario and populated by strong, passionate Métis women. The breathtaking landscape of Georgian Bay is painted into every page. Each of Mary Lennox's trials and triumphs still drew me in and gave me a thrill, despite my knowing they were going to happen. Reading this book has revived my long lost pastime of digging around in old, overgrown patches hoping to discover my own forgotten key.
