My son is reading on the 7th-8th grade level, but I worry that because the main character is a female that he won't like it. Anyone out there have a son who likes this book? Any boys out there who like it?

My son enjoyed the series at age 10-11. He tends to stick to "boy" books normally, so don't be discouraged by the fact that the book has a female protagonist. PRD

My son is a seventh grader, and while he is an excellent reader, he has never reached for books as entertainment. This series has changed that in a dramatic way. He Just finished book three in one day, and is already pestering me for the next one. I don't believe that having a female main character will keep your son from enjoying this series one iota.

Who knows? says:
The main character's no sissy, so I don't think he'll mind. In fact, it might heighten his standards and appreciation for women when he gets older.

I don't know. I loved the book, but I read it when I was 11. I think that 9 might still be a little too young for the series.

I would agree, I think content would be a little too much for 9. I teach middle school age kids.
