Un Lun Dun
7.  Un Lun Dun by China Miéville
The list author says:
  "I don't pay a lot of attention to cover blurbs, but there was one on this book describing it as a mix of 'Alice', 'Oz' and 'Phantom Tollbooth', which true, and yet there was even more to it than that. Wish I'd read this as a 12- or 13-year-old."
