This summer I will be traveling to Montara, California where I will venture through the novel "Story of a girl" written by Sara Zarr.  From what I can tell this novel takes place in a small town where a young girl at the age of thirteen goes where no young girl should go at that age with one of her brother's supposed friends. 

I am also going to read the novel "Crank" written by Ellen Hopkins.  I am interested in traveling through the mind of a girl who is hooked on drugs to see where her life leads her.  This novel is actually based on a true story.  The author went through a similar situation with her daughter and the monster they call "crank".

Finally, I am going to venture out to the world of "Girl bomb" written by Janice Erlbaum.  I am going to Brooklyn, New York with a run away girl who lives a hard life but believes it is better than being at home. 

Although I have never been to any of these places I am excited to learn about my new adventures to these different cities and states.  I love to travel and this will be a new way for me to do it and to learn and look at it in a different perspective.  This is a first for me and I am going to enjoy every single minute of it.

I hope everyone enjoys their journey just as much as I am going too.
