    Nice mix

    I think this book has a nice mix of the usual big name places, like Washington, D. C. New York and Chicago, but also lesser known places, like Minnesota and Tennessee. The personal tales also provide unique views of each location. I hope there can be more!

    Worth it!

    Some of the young people writing these essays are quite eloquent about the areas of our country in which they live or visit. There were one or two which were a bit too eloquent for their stated age.

    Not worth it.

    Dont spend the money. This is really a bunch of essays about why certian places are memoriable. The editors completely missed that the place was in minnasota and say it was in indiana/pen. Kids also dont write essays like the ones featured.
