Comment Newberry Awards (Score 1) 1419

Check out the list of Newberry Honor and Newberry Award books. Even today I will happily sit down with one of these--shorter, simpler prose combined with incredibly powerful stories.

Since you asked for sci-fi in particular, here are a few Newberry suggestions that may suit:

The Giver by Lois Lowry (Houghton)
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle (Farrar
The High King by Lloyd Alexander (Holt)

Full list can be found here:

Check them out, you wont be sorry. :)
