QotD: Modern Classic

What modern book do you think will be read in high school by the next generation of kids?
Submitted by Tom.

These are the modern books that I think should be taught in high school mostly because I love them so much.  They are all well-written and would give high school students a new perspective on different cultural/social issues (well maybe not Time Traveler’s Wife, but I love it too much to not include it).

The Kite Runner

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

The Time Traveler's Wife

The Namesake: A Novel

    I thought they were great choices, myself. Lol. These are all on my list of favorites (obviously). You should read them soon, Jennifer.
