If you haven't read this book and you have even the slightest interest in YA literature (maybe it's more middle grade), then give it a try. This is the story of Paul as his family moves to the new town of Tangerine, Florida. Through a series of strange (and disastrous) events, Paul starts to remember forgotten events from his childhood and makes the best friends of his life along the way. This was the read-aloud favorite with my fifth graders (after Harry Potter, of course).
