Smart Books for Smartass Kids

Who doesn't like a smart protagonist with an attitude? In children's literature especially, there are some great books with role-models for those young and growing smartasses among us: characters who outwit their adult counterparts, rebel against dimwitted rules, and save the day. Here are some fantastic books with intelligent characters and a plot you can actually sink your teeth into. (Bella Swann need not apply, sorry.)
