Another vote for To Kill a Mockingbird. I had to read both in 10th grade, and I couldn't put Mockingbird down (I got in trouble for reading it during other classes!), whereas I didn't care much for Of Mice and Men. If I had to choose which one to read again, I would choose Mockingbird.

@ Omender, it's for their GCSE, which is a certificicate of education in various subjects (for those of you in countries where you don't do them) They just need to study a text from a different culture, which for us in the UK is American Literature. So neither books messages really go better with the final objective, which is to analyse the lanaguage of the book. I love both and would teach both if I could, and I really have issues choosing between the both.
PS I assume 9th grade is 15 year olds in the US, as that is the age of the students I teach.
