Annotation:This book was first thrust into my hands by a middle school boy who insisted I read it. Since then I've shared it with many other young fans. This author has several books, all of them about young men in trouble trying to figure out how to survive their circumstances. This story is about two boys who commit a crime...and who shoulders the consequences for that.
Annotation:I haven't read much Matt de la Pena, but I hear from high school students that really think he is great. Again, the theme of his books are young men in difficult circumstances, and often tackles issues around racism.
Annotation:This is a sci fi book that has been popular about a group of teens trying to escape a maze. If your reader likes this one there are a ton of other series that will probably appeal like Unwind, Found, I am Number Four and Among the Hidden.
