    United States of YA - UK Style!

    I've just discovered the brilliant United States of YA on Epic Reads, where they have listed a YA book for every single one of the US states. It's really cool, and it got me thinking...what about a British version? One (or more) book for every county? Representing UKYA (woot woot!).

    I'm a bit hazy with geography so I'm just going to start with the English ones, but please, add in Scotland and Wales and Ireland if you can think of any in particular.

    And just for fun, if any of your books are set in England, let me know and I'll add 'em on in blue! For future reference

    I'll get us started...
