  • Have you checked out goodreads.com? you can browse books by age, or genre. Maybe he would like the Percy Jackson serie's? They made that movie about the books. The Lightning Theif, The Sea of Monsters, The Titan's Curse, The Battle of the Labyrinth, The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan.

  • I really like this website: http://www.readkiddoread.com/home

    My son is a Diary of a Wimpy Kid addict - cannot get enough of those. He also likes Big Nate, books by Andrew Clements and Carl Hiaasen.

  • If he likes sports, check out the Matt Christopher series of stories. I also agree with the readkiddoread.com site. James Patterson started that. Oh and he writes some good young adult books!! Take your son to the bookstore and let him browse and see what interests him.
