There is a particular Sci Fi book that I read when I was in grade school. I checked it out from my little public library long before I was paying any attention to esoteric things like "titles" and "authors." I remember the plot quite well, but I have no idea who wrote it or what it may be called.

Is this kind of a question appropriate for the SF&F.SE community?

If so, I'll open this question properly on the site, and provide all the detail I can remember. But I figured I'd check here first to make sure I don't irritate the regulars. :)
