Chuck Palahnuik's Lullaby in the parenting section.
Lullaby is about babies who die after hearing a certain song/poem. This book features one of my very favorite fictional characters - the I-84 Jesus/The Roadkill Messiah who restores dead animals to life.

Trout Fishing in America by Richard Brautigan in Outdoors and Nature.

Ghost World, the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes would be stacked in with the horror books despite the lack of ghosts, villains, and death of any kind. Unless you still believe that girls have cooties and the book's protagonist is a teenage girl.
