As a parent of boys, I know it is sometimes hard to find books that tween and teen boys want to read. Even though there are more boys aged 10-19 than there are girls, it seems that the publishing industry often ignores the boy reader. But, with some looking, there are many books that boys will enjoy.
All the books listed below, I have personally read and think boys will actually enjoy reading. Each book included on the listed is the first in a series, so if your son, grandson, nephew, next door neighbor, etc. likes it, you can easily find another book for them to read.
