Hey, LJ hive mind...

...I'll be doing a presentation in October to a bunch of school librarians and teachers, on the topic "New World Magic: Hogwarts is no longer the only school in town".

I'll be using my own books as examples, natch - but I need other recommendations for YA stuff (and possibly adult work which can be presented to YA readers) which might fit into those parameters.

So far I've the somewhat contentious "The Thirteenth Child" by Patricia Wrede, and possibly I can make a case for the Twilight books (Forks is definitely New World, what with sparkly wompyres and Native American werewolves and all that) - any thoughts on those, or do you have other suggestions?

Comments are open - fire away...
