Try Walter Dean Meyers.  If you like fantasy/mythologic characters read the Prydain Chronicles by Lloyd Alexander (based on the Mabinogion, Welsh mythology).

Re: help for guys

um.....................i got one! try Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. the story is not based on sports at all. it's from a guy AND girl point of view. the whole story happen in less then 24 hrs. There r some YA parts and some cursing. the book ok in my opinion. i rate it 3 1/2 stars. i hope this helps cuz that the only book i could think of.

Re: help for guys

try Anthony Horowitz books. he writes the Alex Rider series and The Gatekeepers series. they are full of action, have barely any romance at all, and the main characters r always teenage guys!

Re: helpppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp

What kind of books r u into? Mystery, horror, sci-fi? Lot of guys seem to like the Cirque Du Freak series by Darren Shan, it's about the adventures of a half-vampire (not bad, a little gory at times). Like Book-aholic25 said, Anthony Horowitz is a good one. The She by Carol Plum-Ucci, a guys parents are lost at sea and it looks like a supernatural creature is to blame. I just started reading The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer, it's about a clone boy, so far so good. It got a couple of awards.

Re: help for guys

ah, I think this question is harder than my chem questions!! (which is saying a lot since I suck at chem!) Have you tried the Midnighter's trilogy? It's sort of fantasy... not mythlogical though.

Re: help for guys

umm i know this series of 2 books that u might like its called The Cry of the Icemark and its sequal is The Blade of Fire. Its sortive shows how one girl at the age of 15 can handle her fathers country Icemark after he dies and how she trys to keep the country from begin taken over. The sequal deals with her son and her daughter. Its a good book i really enjoyed it and it has alot of fantasy involved in it.

Re: helpppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp

Corbenic, by Catherine Fisher, is a kind of modern Grail legend with a good male lead. Good mythology and magic.
