Gillian Wiseman (gillianwiseman) | 186 comments I'm a librarian looking for books, fairly current, that might be in my library, which I could recommend to a younger teen (maybe 13-14), who loves cars, and isn't too eager to read anything lengthy. He also likes spies and action-adventure. He's hispanic, so anything that had a hispanic character would probably also be a plus. Thanks!

Rosa (rosaiglarsh) | 5221 comments Henry Gregor Felsen wrote good books for teens about cars, like Hot Rod and Road Rocket. They're not always exactly car-positive, though. Hot Rod is a real downer.
