Title: Catch 22
Age group: I dunno, I read it at like 12. Older than 12.
Awesomeness rating: 101
Reason: Because the story is amazing, just everything about it is. The sheer complexity is unbelievable. You definitely have to re-read some parts just to grasp what is going on, but trust me, you'll enjoy re-reading it.

Title: Artemis Fowl
Age Group: 13+
Awesomeness Rating: 89
Reason: The story is really good, it just interest me about all the things it has.. It just proves that anyone can be a criminal, and the teenager in the book is extremely smart, and all he wants is money. He travels a lot around the world.. Which I would love to do xD

But with criminals that never happens. Or really anyone.

Title: Redwall (Series)
Age group: 13+
Awesomeness rating: 90
Reason: Lots of books, good ones at that. It's a lot of characters, and relatable ones too. And of course, lots of battles and death.

No no.. I meant anyone.. not smart people.. smart people have a better shot at it. That's why the kid in the book get's so far.

I'm sure the faerie technology is a contributing factor there.

No, it doesn't The book shows that smart people can be great criminals. It doesn't show that Joe Blow can be a great criminal.

Title: The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham

Age group: somewhere between 10 - 16 I think, don 't know for sure...

Awesomeness rating: 100 of course... it's my favorite book!

Reason: I read this book for the first time when I had to choose one for my English book reading list. It's a book that has mystery, science fiction, adventure and doom-survival perfectly woven with eachother, all in one story!
Allthough I'm of older age I never get tired of reading this great work! =D

Congrats on having good taste. I wrote my common app essay on that book, actually. It was a great movie as well.
In addition to the already mentioned Clockwork Orange and Catch 22, I would like to add The Forever War by Joe Haldeman. It's the best sci-fi book ever written (that I've read). It's for mature audiences, but I don't think that maturity has a specific age. It gets a 99, because I hope that the best book hasn't been written yet. I'm somewhat of an optimist.

And Kurt Vonnegut needs a mention as well, but I could never pick a favorite amoung his many masterpieces. Cats Cradle, Sirens of Titan, Breakfeast of Champions... all great books.
