Image of Washington State, cover of Twilight, and a question mark

Business Insider recently posted an interactive map of the most famous book from every U.S. state.  What do you think about their choice of Twilight for Washington?  Comments on the webpost made so far by Washingtonians range from embarrassed to proud.  To date, suggestions for other "famous" titles that would better represent our state are Snow Falling on Cedars, The Egg and I, The City at the End of Time, or something by Sherman Alexie.  What do you think is the most famous book set in Washington State?  Let us know on the Facebook page.
