In need of book recommendations

The video explains why I’m asking for this. Thanks in advance. We are decreasing education suck by educating teachers about the powers of young adult literature.
Some of the categories I need books for:
-A book you love that has been challenged or censored
-graphic novel
-coming of age
-strong female voice
-strong male voice
-vivid setting
-a book you could see reading in a science, history, health, technology, etc. class
-any other favorites that you think your English/Language Arts teachers should know about or wish they had known about.
Leave comments here, or in any of the following places: (my facebook page)
