To jack:

I think the problem is that most of the people posting on this thread are adults. Your question would probably attract attention in the Young Adults Forum. The only way I know how to get there is to pull up the product page of a teen book and then scroll all the way down and look to the right of the page. There should be a link to the Young Adult Forum there. Good luck!

Twilight series, Quinn Loftis (The Gray Wolf series), The Hunger games, Artemis Fowl. That should get you started. For boys Artemis. Avid readers will love them all I have a daughter who reads all the time. She is also writing a book. She is 12. She reads at a college level!

OK . . . I didn't think this was the brag-about-my-kid forum. I'll just add that the TWILIGHT series is awful, and any kid who reads at a college level would have picked up on what garbage it is.

It is very hard to find books written for teenaged boys, in my opinion. It's like the publishing industry has discovered teenaged girls, and has forgotten that there's a whole other market that may be interested in reading something other than HARRY POTTER and sports books.

When I was 14-15, I enjoyed the original James Bond books by Ian Fleming. I assume those would still be pretty cool today. Examples: Casino Royale: A James Bond Novel (James Bond Novels, Book 1), Live and Let Die (James Bond Novels), Moonraker (Penguin Modern Classics), etc., etc.

Garth Nix writes great series for boys. Try Keys of the Kingdom series, in the order of the days of the week, starting with Mister Monday.

The Bluford Series is great for teenage boys and girls. currently there are thirteen books in this series. I read several to my fifth grade class as a read aloud.

Well what kind of genres do you like? If you like fantasy I guarantee The Icemark Chronicles by Staurt Hill and The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini!

The Tillerman books, by Cynthia Voigt. "Homecoming" is the first in the series.

This might speak to my age, but I found Christopher Pike's "Final Friends" trilogy to be, if not the best, an excellent and interesting teen book series. I wish Christopher Pike wrote more teen books nowadays.

I didn't like this series, and once again, I might be speaking to my age, but I'm surprised the Sweet Valley Twins series is not on this list. Growing up, I wasn't a fan of this teen book series, but all of my friends and sisters loooved these books sooo much that they would most definitely include it on a list of one of the best teen book series. I think my sister might even still have those books sitting on a shelf somewhere.

The Mortal Instruments series and the Infernal Devices both by Cassandra Clare. Both have female protagonists but I do know guys who like it. I am 22 and I still read a lot of teen books.

Try the Ranger's Apprentice books and the Last Apprentice (Spook's Apprentice). New Flanagan series, Brotherhood about Scandian hero and sea.

Maze Runner series is good for boys too.

Harry Potter is a given, I think, but I can't believe nobody has mentioned the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. As an adult (a really old one) I steamrolled through those books and enjoyed each and every one. I also find it hard to believe that anyone could recommend the Twilight series as good reading. I just can't fathom that anyone would think that is good writing. They might be the most awful series of books ever written. Not that I can really speak for all of the books because I only managed to get through half of the first one and had to stop while I still had hair left on my head. ( I pulled most of it out reading the first half of the book.) I fear for the literacy of this world after that series and now the Gray (Grey?) porno crap that is topping the best seller lists. Obviously being literate is not a requirement for writers anymore.

Cirque Du Freak series by Darren Shan, Maximum Ride series by James Patterson, Abarat series by Clive Barker, Uglies series by Scott Westerfield and The Percy Jack series by Rick Riordan are all good choices for guys i think. I'm a girl and have read them but my boyfriend enjoys them too. :)

Why respond to something positive with such negativity?
Seriously, throwing insults at a 12 year old girl is in poor taste.

All great recommendations!

The Swallows and Amazons series by Arthur Ransome. Perhaps for young teens, but one of the best of all time. Literate (unlike many modern series intended for teens - Twilight and Harry Potter come to mind) and absorbing. I first read it as an adult, but instantly wished I had read it as a youngster.
