Elementary Level 

Flora and Ulysses DiCamillo, Kate. Flora & Ulysses   

Holy unanticipated occurrences! A cynic meets an unlikely superhero. It begins, as the best superhero stories do, with a tragic accident that has unexpected consequences. The squirrel never saw the vacuum cleaner coming, but self-described cynic FloraBelle Buckman, who has read every issue of the comic book Terrible things can happen to you!, is just the right person to step in and save him. What neither can predict is that Ulysses (the squirrel) has been born anew, with powers of strength, flight, and misspelled poetry--and that Flora will be changed too, as she discovers the possibility of hope and the promise of a capacious heart.

Young Adult 

Reality Boy King, A.S. Reality Boy 

An emotionally damaged seventeen-year-old boy in Pennsylvania who was once an infamous reality television show star, meets a girl from another dysfunctional family, and she helps him out of his angry shell

The Watch that Ends the Night Wolff, Allan. The Watch That Ends the Night: Voices From the Titanic 

The 1912 sinking of the Titanic is recreated in observations by millionaire John Jacob Astor, a beautiful young Lebanese refugee finding first love, "Unsinkable" Molly Brown, Captain E.J. Smith,and others including the iceberg itself. This is especially effective as an audiobook.
