Don’t have the time (or budget) for a unique summer getaway? No problem: Books can take you to interesting locales—and you don’t have to spring for airfare or fancy meals! Whether you’re tucked indoors with the air- conditioning blasting or venturing out to read on the beach or in the park, bring along one of these books featuring an unexpected twist on the typical summer vacation setting:

LOTF

Lord of the Flies by William Golding

Want to visit a remote tropical island? Be careful what you wish for! In this modern classic, a group of boys marooned on a deserted island soon reverts to primitive behavior. A brutal depiction of human nature, this thought-provoking story explores the multiple dynamics of power—who should have it and why.

Two Alone by Sandra Brown

Prefer a wooded, mountain setting? After a plane crash, two strangers are stranded in the mountains and fighting to stay alive. Vietnam vet Cooper Landry has a grudge against beautiful women, but without him, normally self-confident Rusty Carlson will not survive. And there are dangers lurking in the woods—both animal and human.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

Convinced that a luxurious private island is the way to relax in style? Not on this island! In this suspense novel, the Sinclairs are a wealthy family with their own private island—and a shocking family secret. This story features suspense, true love, and good intentions gone wrong.
