I still rate the stuff I read at that age - Robert Swindells' "Brother in the Land" is aimed at a YA audience and stills stands as one of my favourite books of all time. All the better Nicholas Fisk stuff ("A rag, a bone and a hank of hair"), John Christopher (Tripods, "Death of Grass"); Douglas Hill (Legionary series). The nice thing about books is, they're all still there 30 years later :)

Did anyone suggest John Green (especially the Fault in our Stars) and Greg Mortenson's Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Journey to Change the World... One Child at a Time (Young Reader's Edition)?
