"BLOOD RED ROAD," by Moira Young, Margaret K. McElderry Books, $17.99, 464 pages (f) Next » 1 of 5 « Prev
"Blood Red Road" follows the story of Saba as she searches for her twin brother Lugh after he is kidnapped by cloaked riders following the murder of her father. Saba unwillingly allows her younger sister, Emmi, to join in the search for Lugh, and together they are plunged into a lawless world that requires both of them to fight to survive and learn who can be trusted.

This book is written in a poetic style with no quotation marks and phonetic spelling. It’s a beautiful addition to the story that will leave the reader breathless. Readers should be aware that there is mild profanity and significant violence. However, it is a captivating and original read. It has already been snapped up by Hollywood for a film adaptation, so expect to see a lot more of this story.

It looks like all these books are for teen girls. Next time you offer suggestions, how about something on the teen guy side. Yes teen guys like to read too

"The Maze Runner" series is a good read for young males. Pathfinder by Orson Scott Card is great, too.

I just finished Divergent, and I think it's at least as much a teen guy book as a teen girl book, just like Hunger Games (though less violent and depressing than the Hunger Games). I highly recommend both it and Supernaturally.
