Summer vacation is almost over, and we hope it’s been fun and fulfilling. Believe it or not, youth services staff at the library tends to measure the year in terms of school days over calendar days too. We’ve had a great summer, but we’re also excited to experience the new school year with all of you! Before it begins, you still have some precious days to read for pleasure in the morning and afternoon. There’s something (or maybe many things) about August that make it an ideal month to take a trip, but you can transport yourself with a book any time you decide. Here are some reads about road trips and travel for you to enjoy. Comment with books you’ve read and/or places you’ve gone this summer. (Or books you’ve read while you’ve been on the road, in the air, or on a trip. Those are some of my favorite books.)


Jess, Chunk, and the Road Trip to Infinity by Kristin Elizabeth Clark; I See London, I See France  by Sarah Mlynowski; Mosquitoland by David Arnold; The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee



North of Happy by Adi Alsaid; Mare’s War by Tanita S. Davis; 100 Sideways Miles  by Andrew Smith; The Distance from Me to You by Marina Gessner
