Challenge #20: Share a book that takes place close to home.
However, the closer you get to home, the harder it gets. For example, I don't know any books that take place in my hometown but can name a couple books that happen in central Wisconsin. It gets easier if you include all of Wisconsin, and if "close to home" includes neighboring states, then we could name a bunch, I'm sure.
But don't forget to think creatively. There's a phrase that says "that hits close to home" which means something affects you personally. Just today I read a book with some students about a man who got a new puppy. Even though the book isn't in a place close to me, the book still hits close to home because my family just got a new puppy too! Once you think creatively, this week's challenge becomes:
Challenge #20: Share a book that hits close to home.
So either way is fine. Share a book that happens in a location close to home or book that connects to you personally, one that hits close to home.
