If that counts as a classic, then it would jump to the top of my list, too. I first read it at about the same age and have read it several other times since.

Johnny Got His Gun
Slaughterhouse Five
The Jungle

Also Huis Clos(No Exit), a play in French Class. Our French teacher was great, because she was more concerned with us talking about ideas and culture than the language itself which was the only reason I passed those classes. Mon francais est tres mal.

I played the male lead role. It was SOOOOO hard not to laugh out loud at the dialogue near the very end of the play...

God bless Ionesco.

Loved "Grapes of Wrath."

Also liked "The Call of the Wild."

Three books that changed the way I think about the world were 1984, My side of the Mountain, & Walden.

"In Cold Blood" comes to mind since it was so close geographically and was a fairly current event.

A customer ended up taking me out to the house when I started selling in Garden City.

This is what I was thinking of, but I typed Rabit Hill, it has been too long ago.

I dunno if it qualifies as a classic. But I remember reading "Where the Red Fern Grows" as a kid and crying like a baby.
