What's a good book to read?

I'm looking for a book to read for my book club project. Suspense/horror/gothic/teenage/love genres only please. The book has to be fiction, written by an American Author, and cannot be made into a movie! Thankyou!! x

P.S. Stories about traveling -- mind traveling, dreaming/trances, along those lines would be great too!
