Young adult fiction may seem to be all about dystopias today, but there are plenty of books still taking place in the good ol’ US of A.
An Epic Reads user known as EpicGirl has put together this gorgeous map featuring a YA book for every state in the US. For example, Rosemary Clement-Moore’s The Splendor Falls takes place in Alabama, Jean Craighead George’s Julie of the Wolves takes place in Alaska, and so on and so forth. We can’t post the image in question here, but click on the link above to check out the map, then come back here to share your thoughts!
My top ten highlights:
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Florida)
The Fault in Our Stars (Indiana)
The Diviners (New York)
The Truth About Forever (North Carolina)
Beautiful Creatures (South Carolina)
The Raven Boys (Virginia)
How many states are you at? I’m only at 17, but I’m looking forward to a YA road trip, with my first stop being Shattered Souls. (What can I say? I’m a sucker for a cover with a flowy dress.) What are your favorites on the list? Can you think of any other suggestions? Perhaps we can inspire EpicGirl to create a part two!
