Summer reading list

Every summer I say I'm going to read more and every summer I fail miserably. But I'm at it again, and this time I'd like recommendations from whomever will give them to me. Here's the catch: you can only recommend one. I want this summer resolution to be doable, so I can't take lists from everyone. So think of THE one book you would tell someone they "have to read!"

Well, you've probably read everything I have, but here are some faves (besides the classics): "The Moonstone," "Sphere," "Rebecca" ... and "The Time Traveler's Wife" had a promising beginning.
