The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
Neighbors bring food with death and flowers with sickness and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a pair of good-luck pennies, and our lives. But neighbors give in return. We never put back into the tree what we took out of it: we had given him nothing, and it made me sad. (harper lee, to kill a mockingbird)
The first classic work that I read like a dime store mystery novel. At 15 I couldn't put it down and it still has that effect on me!
