Anyone have any suggestions of good books (or even magazines?) that teen boys, ages 15-19 might enjoy and get something uplifting out of. I don't necessarily need overtly Christian materials, but would like books/mags that come from a Christian perspective/that espouse Christian values.  It's for a volunteer project I'm involved in. I'd  like to order a few books on here since I have plenty of credits, but wouldn't be adverse to picking them up at half price books or ordering a magazine  subscription.  They will be given to a group of troubled teen boys, if that helps you with the type of reading material I'm needing.

Not sure if this helps but my brothers enjoyed reading the Douglas Bond boys series. Also the Frank Perreti youth books. I know there are not many out there for boys. Seemd like there are sooo many for girls and very few bor boys:) Hope this helps a little.

I read a book a while ago called The Bark of The Bog Owl.  Part of a series, I believe.  Allegory of the life of King David.  They might like it.

I remmber some called Sugar Creek Gang way back when but not sure if they're teenage or not or if they're still published. Just remember seeing them.

Robert Liparulo's Dreamhouse Kings series. Possibly some of Frank Peretti, Ted Dekker, Robin Parrish...
