Astronaut wivesThere's plenty of excitement in the BookPage office for our Nonfiction Top Pick for June. Several of us are dying to get our hands on Lily Koppel's The Astronaut Wives Club, a look at the fascinating history of the wives of America's Mercury Seven astronauts.

These women bonded together in the face of instant fame and constant public scrutiny, and the stories Koppel shares are oh-so-juicy. Our reviewer found many of the stories in this book to be truly flabbergasting—"You might find yourself shaking your head and thinking, 'Could this be real?' It almost feels like a dream, and occasionally like a nightmare"—which sounds like some great summer reading for nonfiction fans.

Check out the book trailer for The Astronaut Wives Club from Hachette:
