The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
 By Mark Haddon
This insightful murder mystery sees our narrator, Christopher, turn detective to find out how a neighbour’s dog died. As the story unfolds we realise Christopher has characteristics of Asperger’s Syndrome. A deservedly acclaimed read.
Best for: Ages 12+
In a nutshell: Masterful drama
A VERY FUNNY AND INTERESTING BOOK, EVEN IF NOT CLASSICAL;
 

Northern Lights

By Philip Pullman

Pullman writes for teenagers with intelligence and originality. As a result, his celebrated ‘Dark Materials’ trilogy has proved a worldwide success with young and old alike. ‘Northern Lights’ is the opener – set in a parallel universe to ours, where science, magic and theology c-exist. Lyra is an orphan who goes in search of her missing friend and finds herself in a world of witches and ice bears. It’s a dazzling thriller that continues with a brand new trilogy, ‘The Book of Dust’.

Best for: Ages 12+

In a nutshell: Brave modern fantasy
 
AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED I LOVE THIS AUTHOR - PARTICULARLY "CLOCKWORK", A DARK FANTASY BOOK, EASY TO READ AND YOU CAN TRY TO ADAPT ON STAGE.
 
AND OF COURSE YOU HAVE THE SAGA HARRY POTTER BY J.K. ROWLING OR THE SERIES PERCY JACKSON BY RICK RIORDAN.

I completely agree with the two suggestions from Maryse Peyé (4 really, if you include the other Dark Materials books) and would like to add The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.
