Overdrive's most downloaded ebooks (juvenile category)
Overdrive lists their most downloaded books each month.
I thought the juvenile non-fiction list was very interesting.
1. Three Cups of Tea
2. Omnivore's Dilemma
3. 1001 Facts about Dinosaurs
4. The U.S. History Cookbook
The first two surprise me as being quite meaningful and a serious read.
Do you think we underestimate our children and the next generation will surprise us? Is there hope for us?
[The dinosaur book would have been my favorite ]

At the Philadelphia Library, Omnivore's Dilemma is classified as Health & Fitness, Nonfiction, Sociology which seems about right. It really isn't a juvie book.
Kids don't read today. The ones that do read, read a lot, but most don't. I work with kids and ask them daily about what their favorite things to do are. Very few mention reading. That would have been my #1 answer when I was a kid.

There are some great books on high school reading lists nowadays, much updated from when most of us on MR were in high school. Some of the classics still are on the lists, but the selections are much more diverse now, including authors who are still alive, lol.
If you want to check out such lists, B&N stores sometimes have tables of books so marked in the kids' / young readers' section.
