Top 10 books about outsiders for teenagers

Darren Shan is the New York Times bestselling author of Zom-B, Cirque Du Freak, The Demonata, and the Saga of Larten Crepsley series. He lives in Ireland, and his books have sold more than 25 million copies worldwide.

One of his top ten books about outsiders for teenagers, as told to the Guardian:
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess

Sometimes outsiders are not misunderstood heroes. Sometimes we can afford ourselves too much freedom. Sometimes we need to think about how roughly we should rub against the grain. This book urges us to reflect on that, and more, in the most controversial of ways.
