Sorry, couldn't figure a way to edit my first post to add the author. My suggestion for the next book is A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. LeGuin.
I'm going to nominate my beloved Ne(i/a)ls: Stephenson - Snow Crash or CryptonomiconGaiman - Neverwhere or American Gods
Sir Terry Pratchett!Either Equal Rites or Guards Guards (ie. the first of the Witches series, or the Guards series respectively).If it's light hearted, and superbly witty fantasy you are after, that is.
I nominate "Hero and the Crown" by Robin McKinley
@Midnight Traveler - my FAVORITE BOOK EVAR!!!yeah, i'll second "Hero and the Crown". very appropriate for geek girls as the girl protagonist kicks butt.
"Winterlong" by Elizabeth Hand. Spec fic/SF. Gender issues, incest, feral Plague children, mutant prostitutes, genetic experimentation, and it's all set in a post-apocalyptic Washington, D.C.
