I had some trouble getting into this book, but it was well worth the effort.

It's set in a fantastic world where monsters roam and people have body-modification surgery to become better at defeating them. Rossamund, an orphan child, wishes to become a sailor or a monster fighter, but instead is offered a position as a Lamplighter. He doesn't think this is nearly as exciting, but on his journey to begin his training, he encounters a number of adventures.

(This is fine for the middle school library, but unless you have a good core of fantasy lovers, it may not be circulated much.)
