I'm re-reading Meghan Whalen Turner's Thief books again. Currently I'm reading The Queen of Atolia. What has struck me this time round is how well Turner describes court life and how countries operate and why they do some of the crazy things they do. For students, for teachers, these books provide an excellent base for thinking about settings for stories, particularly in regards to invented countries. I hope you get a chance to read through them.
