The Tombs of Atuan (Earthsea Cycle, #2)
I only really enjoyed this book when I reread it in highschool. When I first read it in fifth grade as merely another blip on my unstopable sci-fi/fantasy binge, I didn't enjoy it or get it. The first Earthsea book followed a traditional quest form, even though LeGuin toys with and subverts many fantasy tropes; "Tombs" is slow, spiritual, nearly plotless, and plays with gender and tradition in a way I couldn't appreciate at the time. Later, I loved it, though I haven't read it in 12 years.
