Thank you for your suggestions! I have elimated duplicates and put the list
in alphabetical order by Author then Title. Enjoy!

My original request:

> I am in a new library this year and, while we have an excellent collection
> of pleasure-reading titles, I find that we are light on what I would
> consider classic literature: Animal Farm, 1984, Jonathan Livingston Seagull,
> etc. When a student came in asking for them I was surprised to learn they
> were not already in the collection. This prompted me to think there must be
> more that are not coming to mind that really should be here in my media
> center. Therefore, collective brain, I come to you for suggestions for
> must-have classics for my middle school.
