These may be too mature but she's 17 and drawn to melancholic books and are recent titles -

The Secret Life of Bees
Handmaid's Tale (already mentioned)
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett
Duma Key by Stephen King
The Road by Cormac Mccarthy
Cage of Stars by Jacquelyn Mitchard
The Speed of Dark by Elizabeth Moon
Light On Snow by Anita Shreve

Again, these are all adult titles - most I'd probably let my 17 year old read - Duma Key is dark - but - I loved Stephen King when I was a teenager - and the end is dark - not a super horror book, but just dark.
