Five YA novels that will give you major wanderlust

At the B&N Teen blog Alyssa Sheinmel tagged five YA books that will give you major wanderlust, including:
Charlie, Presumed Dead, by Anne Heltzel

Some trips aren’t fun-filled vacations. As this novel opens, young, handsome, and charming Charlie Price is presumed dead after a tragic plane accident—all that’s left of him is his bloodied jacket. Friends and family are gathered in Paris to mourn him—including his two girlfriends, Audrey and Lena, each of whom had no idea that the other one existed. Turns out, each girl dated a different version of Charlie, and they’ve begun to suspect that Charlie had even more secrets up his sleeve. Audrey and Lena don’t exactly like each other at first, but their shared suspicions about the boy they thought they knew will lead to an unlikely friendship and a search for the truth that takes them to London, Mumbai, Kerala, and Bangkok. Did Charlie ever love them? Could he still be alive? And if he is, why does he want them to think he’s dead? As this thriller unfolds, readers will discover that Charlie isn’t the only one keeping secrets.
