Mine is probably "Somebody else's kids" by Torey Hayden. "Just another kid" by the same author is rather interesting, too.

It's a tie between 'No One Belongs Here More Than You' (Miranda July) and 'The Illumination' (Kevin Brockmeier).

My two favourite books are the same as the two movies I chose for the favourite movie thread. "The Shining" by Stephen King and "The Haunting Of Hill House" by Shirley Jackson. I can't give reasons why though. Some things just give me an enjoyable feeling when I watch/read/play/look at/listen to them and I can't quite put my finger on what it is.

I also love "Junk" by Melvin Burgess and "The Hahnemann Sequela" by Harold King.

I really enjoyed The Giver. It's a book for children that deals with serious themes of futuristic utopia, population management, and euthanasia. The Giver is the individual assigned to be permitted to understand pain and suffering, but also great excitement and pleasure. The Giver is in a way responsible to keep the lessons of the past alive, bearing the burden of knowledge so that society may exist in its supposed perfection where no one experiences negativity or even sees color. The color thing is obviously playing on the blandness of this utopia.

Going on what others have said, I also really enjoyed Ender's Game/Speaker and read that entire series. He also wrote a very interesting series called the Homecoming saga which I would definitely recommend.
