An unremarkable fishing trip with nothing at stake! Gorgeous nature writing about real animals! Healthy relationships with high school boyfriends!

 

Well, no, but the nature writing really is one of the best parts of this book. Karila writes a wildness to summer in Lapland that is exquisitely beautiful, with weird locals that are as much a part of the sweltering landscape as the mythical creatures that are normalized amidst them. Also, I am a huge fan of books that are *simultaneously* a murder mystery, and this one does not disappoint!
