I teach high school and have found the boys mentioning some of these as former favorites. Hope this helps.
The Outsiders by Hinton
Anything by Gary Paulsen--like Hatchet
Holes--by Sachar (a bit young for 7th and 8th graders) or anything by this author
Any book by Avi
Eragon by Paolini
Any novel by Paul Zindel
Books by Spinelli, like Maniac Magee
Tangerine by Bloor
Chris Crutcher is a good YA sports author
Monster by Walter Dean Myers (all books by this author are more appropriate for older mature boys)
I have these and would be happy to offer a 2/1 deal on them:
Oh, I smoke and have nearly two cats, in case you have requester conditions. :)
The Divide ::
I have Sounder (Wikipedia calls it a young adult novel) and The White Fox Chronicles (Gary Paulsen) in fiction. Also The Indian in the Cupboard and The Return of the Indian by Lynne Reid Banks depending on reading level.
Also non-fiction books on raising snakes, dogs, hermit crabs or ferrets.
If you find anything else of interest I will do 3/1.
