Road Trip USA Reading Challenge

The United States has 50 states, 1 federal district, 5 inhabited territories, and 9 uninhabited territories, and that means there is an opportunity to read books set in many locations. The book needs to take place primarily in the state/territory where it is used, but some travel is allowed.
