College Bound Books - The Sandman, Volume 1
Sandman is an unforgettable tale of the forces that exist beyond life and death, told by weaving ancient mythology, folklore and fairy tales. A wizard attempting to capture Death to bargain for eternal life traps her younger brother Dream instead. Fearful for his safety, the wizard kept him imprisoned in a glass bottle for decades. After his escape, Dream, also known as Morpheus, goes on a quest for his lost objects of power. On the way, Morpheus encounters Lucifer and demons from Hell (the Justice League), and John Constantine (the Hellblazer).

Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Club: House of the Scorpion
House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer
Opium is a dystopian society in which clones are created to ensure the survival of the person who’s DNA they possess. Most clones have their brain removed at birth, but Matt is different. He was cloned from the dictator of Opium, and was raised fully intact. Even though he is educated and raised in the lap of luxury, those around him see him as a soulless animal. That is, everyone but his caretaker and two other people who love and accept him. This is a story of humanity, acceptance, and finding purpose.
