I'm pretty much a stranger to most sci-fi, but those are great lists.  Came in to see if Bradbury and Card were on there, saw that indeed they were.  I got nothing else to add but thanks for posting this!

Anything a person can do to promote good SF improves the world.

I can elaborate on that statement but it's going to take an hour, a projector, one of those cute laser pointers... and no heckling from the audience.

Have you seen this flow chart from Lawrence Library to help teenagers find something else to read after Hunger Games!

Great list, thanks!

YA: Pathfinder - Orson Scott Card (doubtless, there are other sci-fi Card books, but this is the one I can attest to... also, the sequel is coming out in October)
MG: Only You Can Save Mankind (Johnny Maxwell series) - Terry Pratchett
