The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer

While diving headfirst into science fiction may initially seem daunting and overwhelming, ease your tween into the genre with Nancy Farmer’s House of the Scorpion. A Newberry Honor Book, Michael L. Printz Honor Book, and National Book Award Winner, this is a novel both you and your young reader will want to read and talk about afterwards. Farmer’s conceptual future is reflective in many ways of issues facing our world today, and a great starting point for discussions on what kind of future your child envisions for his own generation.
