Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

Certainly a blast for preteens who need the 'Different is good' shpeil that parents and teachers shove down their throats affirmed.
I wouldn't aim for an audience higher than 12 though.
But maybe I'm overestimating 'the youth of today.'

As gossip/fashion books go, (which isn't that great) this is still one of the best.

Eragon (Inheritance Cycle #01) by Christopher Paolini
Eragon (Inheritance Cycle #01)

There is not a single phrase in this book that does not fit under the catagory of (a)Purple Prose, (b)Mary-Sue, (c) clishe, or (d) all of the above.
The success of this book is built on the fact that his publishers were, in fact, good old Mom and Dad, and the marketing of the fact that he was homeschooled and started writing it at 15. (Make no mention of that fact that it was -finished- by about 18)
