Books for Teen Guys

When you’re looking for a new YA book to read, it can seem like the whole section is devoted to girls who want to swoon over a dreamy vampire or happen to become leaders of a revolution. While these books are certainly enjoyable, and even guys can find something to like in them, we wanted to focus on books that are written specifically for teen guys, complete with male narrators or main characters. And very little romance.

All of the following books may be found at the McCracken County Public Library.
