We have some unconfirmed suggestions and some that aren't YA. We want to pick books that not only take place in these states, but make references to them (either the state or a city in that state), so that the location plays a role.

Here are the spots we have left to fill!

Alaska
Arizona
Delaware
Hawaii
Idaho
Kansas
Kentucky
Louisiana
Mississippi
New Hampshire
North Dakota
Oregon
Rhode Island
South Dakota
Tennessee
Texas
Vermont
Virginia
Wisconsin
