Hey all

I have another teaching challenge for next semester. I will be teaching a 
bunch of 16 year old exchange students from Mexico. They are selected on 
the basis of English language ability, but that said, my colleague is 
teaching them an ESL version of Brave New World. I need a suggestion for a 
novel to teach. I would like a sophisticated YA novel, preferably in the sf 
and F genre. It needs to be reasonably short (the ESL business, which cuts 
out Merlin Conspiracy), but also not too shallow, so there will be some 
themes to discuss. I suspect 16 year olds think themselves above Harry 
Potter. Any suggestions?
