Not much time for reading even picture books today for some reason. However, here are two I just added to my YA list as I think they have great potential for older readers.

Ed Young's captivating collage illustrations are key to this book. They swamp the double page spreads as the tsunami swamps the island it destroys. Pair with THE NATION by Pratchett?
