Great stories - suitable for political science as well as literature classes

I read The Giver while substitute teaching a couple years ago. In talking to the English teacher who I subbed for, I commented that I would like to know if the boy and the baby lived or died. He mentioned that there was a sequel. Imagine my surprise when I found out it was actually a tetrology. I read through all four books in less than a day and a half, and went back to re-read them a second time. I was fascinated by the implications in sociology, political science, economics, and the moral and ethical dilemmas presented in the stories... in a medium that even the most naive teenager could not only understand but enjoy. Recommended for anyone who wants to instill a creative means of considering life's lessons to their children.
