Great books for high school English class?

My high school daughter has been assigned some odd books for her English class. Decent books, but not heavyweights. Thinking back it was the same when I was in high school: weird selections: Silas Marner, Invisible Man, Scarlet Letter. So I was wondering: what would be some great books to read in a high school English class?
