What are some contemporary coming of age novels? I am in a reading group and our current theme is "the adolescent experience." But most novels we have read thus far speak to the experiences of past generations. What are some novels, written for adult audiences, that might describe the experience of a modern adolescent in our society?

We are hoping to find a book that would be considered "literature" (as opposed to a pop novel page turner - I know its murky) and is written generally for adults (no twilight or harry potter, etc.). Finding something that might be considered a future classic is a plus. Thanks!
