I'm going to recommend something a little different since any book that I would recommend I'm sure you've all read. I stick to fairly mainstream novels. So here is a graphic novel that most probably missed.
Amazon.com: I Kill Giants Fifth Anniversary Edition TP (9781607069850): Joe Kelly, J.M. Ken Niimura, Chris Colombus: Books
A very touching story that hit close to home for me. I'd say why but it would spoil the story completely.
