I'm looking for specific book recommendations for high school exchange students.

I'm tutoring small groups of high school exchange students (juniors and seniors) and I'd like to include a book club aspect with each group. However, I'm having trouble coming up with a list of good books that will be accessible and engaging for the students. Most of the students have read only a handful of (non-textbook) books in English, so I want to start with something I'm sure each student can finish. Their reading levels vary, but I estimate one group has a reading level comparable to an average high school junior's level, while the other groups are further behind.
Help me find novels or collections of essays/short stories that we can read and discuss together.
