I found the perfect book for him! I LOVE YOU, BETH COOPER! Trust me he will read it and want more. There is everything, sex, drinking, driving, fighting, drugs. I mean sometimes it pretty much goes into details and stuff and I'm sure he would like that.


 

Sounds really good, Ravenclaww!  Thanks for the suggestion!

You should check out "The Tower of Shadows" by Drew C. Bowling. 

"Pendragon" is another good series, my bro reads them.  He read them twice in 3 weeks.  Two of my guy friends are reading them too.  So I guess they're pretty good

Re: Looking for book suggestions for a 14 yr old guy who hates to read

Theres a book i am reading now im not done yet but you dont have to bee done with a book to know its good.

 Any ways its called Thirteen Reasons Why by: Jay Asher

       -Its about a guy named Clay who one day recieves a box of tapes and later finds out they are from his deciesed friend Hannah but before she passed away she put down thirteen reasons why she did. But Caly isnt the only one to get them and he wont be the last through out the story secrets and truths are brough to the surface and Hannah wants all those that are the cause of her death to know her thoughts on it all, To know her which no one ever new. Through out the book you go on a journey with Clay to discover the connections between them all and all the places hannah have been and all the things shes seen.

 

This book is great its full of suspense and turns you didnt think would come. I couldnt pull myself away from it well i had to because of school and to eat and shower and my parents made me clean but the whole time it was with me.

Re: Looking for book suggestions for a 14 yr old guy who hates to read

That is a foolish choice of intrest for a 14 year old. you must first consider that not all 14 year olds think alike. The only reason for something like that is if the child is exposed to sexual context. Its sad to say our children are exposed at a tender age, so that is how they lose intrest in things there age, these things make them grow up to fast, which is why we have so much tennage pregnancy. What do you think about that?
