Book List: My Favorite Realistic Fiction

While the fantasy genre is where I spend most of my reading time, I do enjoy a lot of realistic fiction. It's also a great place to start if you're not much of a reader. No one's asking you to engage in any major suspension of disbelief, like with books that have magic, or dragons, or superheroes, or advanced technology, or the complete dissolution of the United States government. So I thought it would be a good idea to do a basic list of my favorite realistic fiction books. I'll probably do other lists that get more specific within the genre, but for now this is a good place to start.
