Next time you're in the library, look for the map on the bulletin board behind the Young Adult Reference Desk.
Now, find a pin to the left of the map and mark a place that you have traveled this summer, whether in reality or through books. Fantasy and science fictional realms are included.
So far the map indicates that you are all quite worldly, though only one person so far has traveled south of the equator.
I dare you to go even more exotic. Try one of these great books:
