The University Bookman has put forth a summer reading list which includes David Mills’ review of What Happened to Sophie Wilder

Even though this book tells of a young woman’s conversion to Catholicism, a subject of natural interest to a convert, it is not a book I would have read, because everything about it (the publisher, the blurbers, the other reviews) signals “modern, hip, and young, i.e. earnest and navel-gazing.” But apparently it isn’t like that at all . . . .

and suggestions by Eve Tushnet, Roger Kimball, and Daniel McCarthy among others.
