Patricia (theinfophile) | 3 comments The Red Pyramid (Kane Chronicles, #1) by Rick Riordan
The Throne of Fire (Kane Chronicles, #2) by Rick Riordan

Granted, they're fantasy/fiction. And they aren't good. But, they're here for the taking!

Another (though much less intense) classic set in Martha's Vineyard. Stunning details that stay with me after many years.
