North of Beautiful
I imagine Melissa recommended this, since it's a YA book, and I'm glad she did because I enjoyed it. The basic plot was a bit trite, with an abusive father, and a complicated romance, but that was easily overlooked with all the interesting bits. Geocaching, China, and maps all feature prominently here, and that's never a bad thing. There's also a good message about beauty and art. And Seattle! I almost forgot that.
