One Bird 
by Kyoko Mori

Probably the best YA novel I've read as an assignment. Audience: 9-12 year old girls.




The Wrecker 
by David Skinner

I liked this book.   Really imaginative, odd story.  This is a probably the best boy's book listed here, though I think many girls would enjoy it too.  If you have a young male reader, especially the ones you want to encourage to read.  Get them this one.

Audience: Young Adults
