Best Books for Older Teen Boys
As teenage boys get older it becomes harder and harder for them to find good reads. Let's help them out by compiling a list of great reads for young men here. Please don't vote for anything that's even marginally Middle Grade. They want to read up, not down.

message 1: by Wendy (new)

Wendy This is probably one of the hardest questions I get asked at my library... It's so hard to tell with a teen boy what appeals to them.

I'd love to see more get added to this list..I will definitely be using it in teen readers advisory!


message 2: by Brent (new)

Brent His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman


message 3: by Donna (new)

Donna Thanks for this list. Here's hoping it will entice my non-reader boy!


message 4: by Bookiemonster (new)

Bookiemonster What about under the never sky? It's half from a male PoV right?
