Potential, Ariel Schrag. An autobiographical comic book written by a straight/bi/lesbian/queer girl about her junior year of high school. Totally changed my ideas about honesty in writing.

The Eighteenth Emergency, Betsy Byars. Re-read this when I was an adult and realised how brilliantly Byars does dialogue, and how she builds the whole millieu around it.

Goodbye To Berlin, Christopher Isherwood. A memoir of Isherwood's time in pre-Nazi Germany. The most beautiful prose I have ever read.
