the beginnings of the list...

okay, a list of suggestions... this will be a serious of dis-organized posts until I figure out the exact format...
To start:
Speak: book is a little dark but very funny and a quick read. Laurie Halse Anderson (a fantastic author and NICE woman)
Prom: same (much lighter, good for medium-high level)
Catalyst: same (this one is better for upper level MS readers. Good for those high-pressure students)
Indigo, Aquamarine, Jade: Alice Hoffman. brilliant, lyrical SHORT. great for both high and low level readers as they are so well written but manage to be inviting in both length and subject matter. Jade is the higher level, Indigo the lower level
