A call: male protagonists in YA/MG - no romance

The Ruins of Gorlan - John Flanagan Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Jeff Kinney Middle School, The Worst Years of My Life - James Patterson, Chris Tebbetts, Laura Park A World Without Heroes - Brandon Mull

Fellow bookish people:


I am looking for MG/YA books with male protags for my reluctant reader son. He is 13 & loves:


Diary of a Wimpy Kid

James Patterson's Middle School books

The Rangers Apprentice series by John Flanagan

The Beyonders by Brandon Mull

Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling


He is lukewarm on Percy Jackson & Alex Rider.


No love triangles. In fact, no romance at all to speak of unless it is not central to the story. He is not an advanced reader & is probably happiest reading at about a 6th grade level.  Anyone got anything for me?
