I posted about Karen Kingston's Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui here: http://lectitans.livejournal.com/72724.html It's not a kid book but it's fairly kid friendly, I think.

Here is a post on a 2008 nonfiction book - Students on Strike: Jim Crow, Cilv Rights, Brown and Me, that brings to life the inspiring of a student led strike, protesting the "separate but equal" facilities at their high school in 1951. The voice is so strong that teenagers today will feel like they are marching, too.
