Are there young adult books for boys?

I was listening to a podcast today and they were talking about how young adult books are more for girls than boys.  They were talking about how boys just skip over the young adult books.  I tried to think back to my youth (I know a long time ago) and what I read.  I admit I didn’t read the most as a teenager.  I did read a lot of westerns.  Not a lot of young adult through.

I do read a lot of YA now.  Also there is plenty of YA for boys.

Recommendation #1 Brandon Sanderson’s – Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians

A very funny book about how some of our weaknesses can really be strengths.  Seriously fun read by a very good author.

Recommendation #2 Cinda Williams Chima – The Warriors Heir

A good book set in modern-day but brings in old school sword fighting and battles.  If you like action this is your book.

recommendation #3 James Dashner – The 13th Reality

Mystery and other dimensions.  I feel like I have a better explanation for this but I am getting a little sleepy here.

So there you go.  Three good recommendations.  Sure there is Harry Potter, Percey Jackson, and Eragon.  Those are all excellent and fun reads but everyone knows those right?  I have some more suggestions for fun Young Adult reads but I gave you plenty to read for now.  Enjoy.
