I'm assuming Ender's Game has already been considered? Otherwise, The Giver might not be a bad one to consider.

This year's Printz award winner "Ship Breaker" is sci-fi. THat might fit the bill.

Do you want it be a stand-alone, or can it be part of a series? (if former, that eliminates many)

Ender's Game? The 1991 version's slightly different. Also, are you open to fantasy?

Is Cory Doctorow's Little Brother scifi enough? Nice bonus that it's free. I also liked Last Book in the Universe.
