Which classics appropriate for young adult (9-12 grade) church library?

As I'm making purchase selections I thought it would be nice to add classics to our small but growing fiction section. What would be appropriate classics to include in a young adult, grades 9-12, church library? Looking for a top five or top ten to build on through the years. Any suggestions?

A few that we have and that I have seen as I checked the catalogs of other church libraries are:

Catherine Marshall

Christy (DVD series also available)


C. S. Lewis

Chronicles of Narnia (DVD series also available)

Louisa May Alcott

Little Women

Little Men

Jo's Boys

Elizabeth George Speare

Witch of Blackbird Pond

Sign of the Beaver

The Bronze Bow

Wilson Rawls

Where the Red Fern Grows (DVD series also available)

John Bunyan

Pilgrim's Progress (J edition available)


Add some biographies such as

Jim Elliott:  Shadow of the Almighty

Corrie Ten Boom:  The Hiding Place


I'm sure there must be many more.  I look forward to seeing what others suggest! 




You might want to add the following two as well:

1) Robinson Crusoe

2) Heidi
