I highly recommend Mike Eisenberg's "Programming in Scheme" (Scientific
Press). It was specifically written with high school students in mind,
but is an excellect general introduction to Scheme for just about
anyone. It's well organized, beautifully written, and chock full of 
fun and interesting examples (including an Eliza-like program 
based on Abbot and Costello's "Who's on first" routine).
