Help Finding A Good Progressive Book For A Present!

I Have a 12 year (6th grade) old son and I'm looking for a good book to get him for Xmas. According to his teacher he reads at a 10th grade level and sometimes picks books that are below his level. When I talked to him he said that his library at school doesn't really have many books that would really challenge him. So I want to get him something good, but also challenging and will convey progressive ideas. I got him "A Children's History Of The United States" by Zinn last year. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thankshttp://

Michigan: When Plutocrats Rule

"Republicans also put a $1,000,000 appropriation into their bills that prevents a citizen referendum on the new law once itís passed. So, not only did Michiganders not have any input into the process before the Republicans steamrolled it through, there will be no input afterwards either."
