Looking for Anne: How Lucy Maud Montgomery Dreamed Up a Literary Classic by Irene Gammel. A really interesting non-fiction read about an absolutely fascinating woman. I loved that this biography looked at Montgomery's life through a very specific lens and did not seek to endlessly relate every detail of her life, but instead sought to get closer to this magnificent author's formidable soul through her legacy of books.

Cherry Ames: At Spencer. Written in 1949 by Helen Wells. This is the 10th book of the Cherry Ames series.
