Boy's Life, by Robert R. McCammon:
Winner of the World Fantasy Award and Bram Stoker Awards, this haunting fantasy follows 12-year-old Cory as he comes of age in Zephyr, Alabama. All is not as it seems in Zephyr: When his father makes a gruesome discovery in the river, Cory's eyes are forever opened to the supernatural underside of his small town.
Dawn, by Octavia Butler:
From the award-winning author of Parable of the Sower comes the first book in the gripping Xenogenesis Trilogy. Earth as we know it is gone. Lilith Iyapo's husband and son perished in the apocalypse, but she was rescued by an enigmatic alien race called the Oankali. They plan to save the humanity — but at a price Lilith is reluctant to pay. A unique sci-fi saga that explores cultural identity and what it means to be human, Dawn is a masterful novel from a titan of sci-fi.
Sunshine, by Robin McKinley:
Neil Gaiman himself calls this award-winning urban fantasy story "practically perfect." Sunshine has managed to eke out a decent life for herself as a baker in the small town of New Arcadia, but when she needs a moment of peace away from her family, she heads out to their old lakeside cabin. Unfortunately, Sunshine's communion with nature is interrupted by a group of Others. The vampires make her their prisoner — and if Sunshine wants to escape, she'll have to live up to her name. A funny, smart romantic fantasy with a heroine it's impossible not to root for, Sunshine will delight fans of The Souther Vampire Chronicles or Buffy.
