Need some reading recommendations for teenaged boys
Does anyone have some recommendations of high-interest/low
reading level books that would interest teenaged boys?
All of those suggestions are excellent. I teach
ninth-twelfth graders, and I find that many of my young men also
enjoy reading The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven(or
even Alexie's YA novel), A Long Way Gone, Monster, Under
a War-torn Sky, the Percy Jackson series, The Hunger Games
series, Tangerine, and pretty much anything that deals with
social issues (whether they be teen issues or global issues) and
has a male main character. It doesn't really matter what you
give them as long as you present in a positive, interesting
way--find out what kinds of books they like (i.e. if he likes
fantasy, have him readA Wizard of Earthsea), then suggest something
in that genre. Show them who else is reading it, too.
That also helps.
