I love YA. And I love YA that takes place in places I have been. (This is true of non-YA also. I love Luanne Rice's books, especially the ones that take place on the Connecticut coast.) So, Epic Reads list of the United States of YA is awesome. You can figure out how to book travel through the whole country, except DC. (And okay, they are missing the territories too.) It makes me sad. Especially since it's not like I can't come up with YA books that take place in DC, like, oh say, Meg Cabot's All American Girl or Ellen Emerson White's The President's Daughter. And okay, those are kind of oldish (not that the age of good fiction matters, but still). So, some minor googling finds that there is also Rachel Cohn's You Know Where to Find Me. And I'm sure there are tons more that I am forgetting.
So, enjoy this list. And maybe, be sad with me that DC got left out. We have YA readers here too.
