The Book of Heroes - Miyuki Miyabe

This is one of my favorite books to recommend both to sci-fi experts and recent converts to the worlds of Coraline and The Hunger Games. Armed only with the powerful Book of Heroes, the young Yukiro races into an unknown world to save her brother. She is not fighting magical monsters, though, but cruel bullies. Miyabe’s writing is sparse, witty, and deeply invested in the mystical, while her topics are painfully rooted in the real world.
