Here's a challenge: icon_lol.gif Please can anyone suggest any books that teenage readers might enjoy, particularly any books for 15 year old boys?

Have a look on the Booktrust's website at www.bookheads.org.uk for this year's shortlist for their Teenage Fiction Prize (just announced) - lots of good reads for boys.

Besides the obvious Terry Pratchett which my 15yr old has read - have you tried the Ender Saga by Orson Scott Card; also the Dan Brown Books the DaVinci Code etc. Elaine

Thanks - I don't know Orson Scott Card, but I read the Da Vinci code and thought it was gripping.

Melvin Burgess is really good. One of the best is Junk. Straight forward and good fun. Deals with important subjects like drugs.

I've just given How I Live Now to my fifteen year old son to read. It's a great novel and even though it's written from a girl's point of view, I think the story will keep him gripped.

Who wrote How I Live Now? I'm sure I have heard of it somewhere.

It's reviewed on this site this month. It's a first novel by Meg Rosoff. Highly recommended!
