I'm not sure these are all considered 'undiscovered', but no one I've ever mentioned them too has heard of them.
Freak the Mighty was fantastic. Really short but so perfect and direct. I cried soooo much while reading that.
John Green's books. Scott Westerfeld's books.
In Italy they are really, really unkown (especially John Green. Absurd, right?) I can never discuss about my favorite books bacause nobody knows them. That's sad.
@Devin - So does that make me a lot older than most of you (at 26?) :D
Anyhow some good reads that I have found in the last six months or so (I know, not that many make the list, but I spend all of my time studying to finish my masters these days)....
The Speed of Dark by Elizabeth Moon
The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell
Sahara Special by Esme Raji Codell!
Yes, it's a kids book, but I LOVE it. Sahara Jones is my alter-ego, I swear.
The Book of Flying by Keith Miller was really, really good. My friend reccommended it to me and it was hard to me to find in person and online. The writing is beautiful. It is about a librarian named Pico that falls in love with a woman that can fly. In order to be together he must grow wings so he sets off to find The Book of Flying. It's a lovely romantic fantasy.
Unwind by Neil Shusterman is a great book. We read it in English, and I loved it. Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce is another of my favorites. It's about two sister werewolf hunters. Twilight readers might enjoy it, but it's a lot better than Twilight, I promise.
