Young Adult Common Core Pairs

You know, I've been working on book pairs for a long time (probably since 2007) and now that it's coming to the forefront with Common Core, I thought I'd publish the ones I've paired.  Going over my book pairs, I noticed I not only paired non-fiction with fiction, but also classic with modern fiction.  I won't mention the latter, but here's the non-fiction/fiction list:
