If you could make all the students in grades 8-12 (plus faculty) at an all-girls prep school read one book, what would it be?

I spent some time Googling all-school read programs, and it doesn’t seem terribly common after middle school. I was surprised at how few lists and suggestions were already out there. Let’s start a resource the whole internet can use!
