Elantris, Brandon Sanderson *****(5 stars)
This is a fantasy novel, and one of my favorites. Better if read by teenagers, as it has some disturbing elements, for example, the main character turns into a zombie who's dead/alive (he doesn't have a heartbeat but he is still alive.... he doesn't need to eat but he's always hungry.... he can feel pain but it doesn't go away). Good wins in the end. My 10th grade sister loved it as well.
