I would like to have our 9th grade English classes read their choice of
either a dystopian or utopian novel during this coming year. I've got a
great lesson plan from MarcoPolo that I can use for the unit. The
problem is that the MarcoPolo lesson is only on dystopian novels and
only lists a few titles for the students to choose from. I would like to
provide a more varied selection and also allow the choice between
dystopian and utopian novels since I'm not sure that every student needs
to be reading "dark visions".

I've chosen several titles through researching Google, going to lists on
Amazon, and through my own reading, but I wonder what titles I'm
neglecting to include that are already in my library collection.

If the collective genius could share with me your choices of dystopian
and utopian novels suitable for ninth-graders (we'll be sending home
synopses and a permission slip) I will post a hit to share the
