I loved the book "Read Aloud Handbook" by Jim Trelease. It's a wonderful way to find a reader that is perfect for your child's interest and grade level. It is more thorough for the lower grades, but I found it very useful in finding specific books each year. He gives a very brief overview of the book, and comments on the grade level. He has updated it many times since it first came out.
When my children were in high school, I spent more time with the book lists is "The Well Trained Mind" by Susan Wise Bauer. Some of the books were overwhelmingly dry (to an untrained mind, like mine!) so you have to look at them carefully. Using this book, we found lots of wonderful high school books that we just perfect for us!

"All Through the Ages" is an awesome resource that recommends books of different reading levels for the different time period s in history. My history-loving son loves to go through this book himself looking for suggestions.
Anyone can take an AP test, even if they have not taken an AP course. The tests are really hard, really long, and the student needs to be prepared.
