I’m sure you are all aware of the latest Big Thing that kind of rocked the YA world. I’m not here to talk about that, but the discussion did spark an interest in me to take a look a male POV in YA. As expected, there are a LOT of boy-driven young adult titles, though not as many as female-lead – at least, not recently. So I thought I’d do my best to compile a list here for our readers to take a look at. Today I’m going to focus on genre fic – fantasy, science fiction, historical, paranormal and horror. Part two will be up in a few days, focusing on contemporary books and also memoirs. This list isn’t meant to be exhaustive. Also, some of these have multiple POV characters, including both boys and girls. Some are first person, others are third. Of course, if you can think of more, just let us know in the comments!
I apologize if I have any of the genres wrong – I haven’t read all of these titles. If you can recommend some other examples in these genres, feel free to leave them below in the comments! And don’t forget to check back for Part 2: Contemporary and Nonfiction!
