    The Lost Children of Tarshish is the best. I read it a bunch of times.

    And for a long time my official “favorite book” was The Red Pearl by Nathan Sternfeld. (Might be for a slightly younger age though, not sure).

    There really are a lot of good Jewish kids books out there, way more so than when I was growing up (and I’m pretty young here!)

    In secular, the City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau is really compelling and well-written, and clean enough that my brother’s class read it in 8th grade. I read it in high school and loved it.
