I love this one for teaching dialogue and point of view as the hens think the peacock has the easiest job, and the peacock think the hens have it easy. It doesn't take long before they realize they each have an important place on the farm, and you just really shouldn't judge or assume.
THE CHOSEN ONE by Carol Lynch Williams. A teen girl is forced to marry the elder of her Mormon compound. But she has other ideas. This is the first modern young adult book that I read when I switched to writing YA. Great story. THE CHOSEN ONE opened my eyes to the almost limitless possibilities of the YA genre.
