My favorite book from childhood was Winter of Fire by Sherryl Jordan. I think I read it in 4th or 5th grade. (The girl does dance around the fire nude, though, and I passed around the book during lunch and scandalized the whole table.)

I don't know if it is a challenging book or not, but as a girl who felt like she didn't belong and wasn't seen for who she actually was, I really related to the main character.
