Great Book Series for Teen and Tween Boys

I have a voracious teenage reader. He can finish a book in an afternoon. Needless to say we are ALWAYS on the lookout for good, clean reads for him. At 13, he tends to be a bit picky. But we've found several series that he has loved that we would recommend to any boy (ages 9-15+) that we think they would enjoy. Here's our list:

  2. Thank you Jen for this list...I also have a 13 year old, but he's not a big reader, he gets bored easily with them, so I am always looking for books that might grab his attention and take hold. :)
