This isn't a bad list with older with newer YA stories. I am not sure if Flowers For Algernon is a YA novel, it is good though. I read A Separate Peace in High School in the 1980s and found it utterly boring. I need to recommend Midnight Club by Pike or his Remember Me trilogy seriously almost anything by Christopher Pike is fantastic also why not a movie on his Last Vampire series? Also Tom Hanks would be perfect as the hospice director in Midnight Club. Also Face on the Milk Carton by ? is very good. article
