Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
This book is a sci-fi classic, and there's a reason for it. Also, there's a reason why it has proven impossible for film adaptation, but you really need to read it to understand. Anyway, Ender's Game does a perfect job of creating a realistic world, warts and all, and allowing a flawed protagonist to negotiate that world even though he is constantly being manipulated. I have to admit that I saw the twist ending on this book coming from a mile away, but I still found the overall experience mind-bending. This is the sort of book you should allow yourself to get swept up in because it will really take you places.
