I wrote this list because the most common plea I get from parents is, "My son won't read - there just aren't any books he likes. He's 13."
(The second most common plea I hear is, "My son won't read - there just aren't any books he likes. He's 9." So I'll have to another list soon.)
For now, you'll find the first list here:
I didn't spend ages researching it, so I'm sure there are other books out there that work too.
These are the books I could think of immediately. The ones that I know work. I've seen them transform non-readers into readers. Plus a couple of new ones that I'm pretty sure WILL work as soon as they come out.
If you work in a school or library you've probably read all of them already. Please do add your own suggestions in the comments here. I'll read as many as I can and add to the list when I like a book.
