I would probably recommend something by Jeanette Winterson or Will Self - their books are relatively short and easy to find and they provide TONS of fodder for discussion.
The House of Breath by William Goyen - A really beautiful book about a desparate, lonely man's rural childhood.
The first books I really obsessed over in middle school were anne rice's, and they'll always hold a special place in my heart. I still have some of her books on my shelf and get teased for it relentlessly by my more "sophisticated" friends
The only thing I love more than reading is talking about reading, so I'm psyched to join this group. I'm also a chronic half-finisher of books so maybe this will provide the accountability I need not to get distracted by all the other lovely books.
