Seven top road trips in YA lit

At the BN Teen blog, Jenny Kawecki tagged seven of the best road trips in YA lit, including:
An Abundance of Katherines, by John Green

What do you do when you’ve been dumped by number 19 in a string of Katherines? Go on a road trip with your best friend, of course. Before you know it, Colin and Hassan have found themselves in Gunshot, Tennessee, staring at the grave of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. But along with the romance and history and wacky best friend moments that are key to a good road trip, Green adds something else, something magical: math. Proving you can, in fact, use math in real life, Colin is building a relationship equation. This book is totally worth a read just for the math appendix alone.
