    Definitely "Life of Pi".

    I loved it; it is one of my favorite books EVER!!

    It's about a boy whose ship he's on sinks, and he's one of the few survivors in a lifeboat with some zoo animals...it's fiction and it's very interesting...especially with the twist at the end!

    Source(s): I've read it.

    I've only read two of them: The Dress Lodger I remember little about, except I know it was dark and I enjoyed it. The characters were good, so that would be good for the poster.

    The Tortilla Curtain was one that I also had to read in school. I was sad, but brought up some good discussion point, so it would probably be good for your essay portion.
