Eurotrip: All Over the Map

I wanted to make a  post about books that took characters all over the map.  Travel books make such great summer reads.  You may be stuck in your city or hometown but reading these books takes you far away and on an adventure.  Here we go!

For Real
by Alison Cherry

Claire is the shy sister while Miranda is the one who lives life to the fullest. After having her heart broken by her boyfriend, Miranda wants to wallow in despair.  Surprisingly, it's Claire who picks her sister up and convinces her to join in on a reality TV race around the globe.  The prizes? A million dollars and sweet sweet revenge.
