If you are looking beyond local issues how about Mountain Beyond Mountain BY Tracy Kidder.  Actually Many of Kidder's books look at social issues.

Subject: [MELIBS-L] Suggestion for Ethics Class


I am looking for suggestions of good reads for an 8th grade ethics class. A big portion of the class is a service learning project which has our students researching an issue of importance to them and then working on the issue out in the community, so the teacher suggested *Pay It Forward*. I used NoveList, but the suggestions were not so great, and I hoped you all might have some other ideas. I came up with* After Ever After* by Jordan Sonnenblick (friends looking out for one another) and *Catalyst* by Laurie Halse Anderson (realizing how helping others is more important than personal ambitions). Please email me directly if you have other suggestions.

I'm reading *Vampires in the Lemon Grove *by Karen Russell. What about you?
