My favourite fiction book at the moment is The Outsiders by SE Hinton. The summary on the back of the book says, "Ponyboy [the main character] can count on his brother. And on his friends. But not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids whose idea of a good time is beating up "greasers" like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect-until the night someone takes things too far." Makes me cry every time.

HMM well, I love the entire Wheel of Time series. I'm terrible at summarizing stuff, though, so here's the official(?) summary:

Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time is a story that takes place both in our past and our future. In his fantasy world, the Dark One, the embodiment of pure evil, is breaking free from his prison. The overall plot is about a man who learns that he is the reincarnation of the world’s messiah and is once again destined to save the world from the Dark One — but possibly destroy it in the process. This saga is not only his story, but the story of an entire world’s struggle to deal with war and change, destruction and hope.
Here are the covers of one set of the editions.

My favorite fiction book is The Edge on the Sword by Rebecca Tingle. Another favorite of mine is The Legend of Lady Ilena by Patricia Malone. I also enjoy the Julie of the Wolves Trilogy by Jean Craighead George.

Mine is Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. It's a story about clones that isn't really about clones, with the feel of a disjointed memory play.

Without any doubt I can say that my favorite fiction books are the Cogheart series. I have actually never met anyone who has read these books before but I really recommend them. The story follows this girl named Lily who's father owned a machine (if I say exactly what it is it would be a spoiler) that lots of people want to steal. To put it simply the machine had the ability to work forever without stopping which made it very valuable. While Lily was away her father mysteriously disappeared while he was on a trip, the people who she had to stay with until he was found were terribly shifty and were trying to locate the forever working invention. While trying to uncover the mysteries of her father she involves a boy named Robert in her shenanigans. Together they spend the rest of the book trying to find Lily's dad and evading the criminals.

There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.
