He might like the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan. Start with this original series of 5 books - there is another series of 5 books that come after this one called The Heroes of Olympus, same world and a few overlap characters but not as good as the first series. Riordan also has the Kane Chronicles trilogy.

I would maybe suggest A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness (which is currently being made into a movie). It's about a 12-year-old boy trying to emotionally deal with his mother's terminal illness, who is visited by a monster at night that helps teach him valuable life lessons. Ness is an excellent writer but his other books are probably a bit too advanced for him still.

The Boundless by Kenneth Oppel

The Underland Chronicles by Suzanne Collins (same author as Hunger Games)

Lockwood & Co. series by Jonathan Stroud. Book 1 is called The Screaming Staircase, Book 2 is called The Whispering Skull.

Chronicles of Narnia series maybe?

The Iron Trial book has been getting a lot of push from bookstores as well this fall. Looks interesting but many people are just calling it a rip-off of Harry Potter.

OK, so I have a friend in jail serving a lot more time and the rules are probably even stricter (separate receipt needs to be sent in a different shipment or else even new books from Amazon will be destroyed).

Anyways, he says that prison libraries skew towards religious books, former crappy bestsellers (dime-a-dozen bestsellers, the crappy sort of chicklit, etc), and classics. Books that deviate from that are better.

Some general rules: books that cost less are better (at a certain point, you can receive 3x $10 books or 1x $30 book), 3-books-in-1 are better (you can have x many objects).

Books that have gone over well:

Ok books. I do books. I r gud reader (no really)

So some of my favorites:

The Dresden Files Series: While Harry Dresden annoys me on occasion, this is a fantastic series of books all about a wizard who advertises himself in the phone book. No, really. Its pretty damn entertaining. Start with Storm Front, the first novel. While the books are each self contained issues they all connect to each other to form a large mega narritive. Urban Fantasy!

The Percy Jackson Series: Starting with the Lightning Thief, this series of books by Rick Riordan are some of my favorites. I am a huge mythology nut, and the idea of a YA series where the kids are demigods is awesome. There are 2 primary series (one starts with The Lightning Thief and follows Percy, the second series starts with The Lost Hero) and tackle both Greek and Roman myth. He has started a new series called Magnus Chase which tackles Norse and its pretty damn good too. And there is the Kane Chronciles which deal with Egyptian...and all 3 groups take place in the same universe! Good stuff. YA Fantasy

The Rook: by Daniel O'Malley, the Rook starts with the main character waking up with no memories of her life, who she is, in a park surrounded by dead bodies wearing gloves. It gets more insane from there. I love this book, and the second in the series was pretty damn awesome as well. Long read though. Urban Fantasy at its finest.

ANYTHING By Brandon Sanderson: No. Really. Pick a book. Read it. Its good. Mistborn series, Alloy of Law series, The Rithmatist, the Reckoners, ect. Everything this man writers is gold. Just pick something and go. I admit I havent read SnapShot yet, but its on my list.

The Cape High Series: Ok so this is an indie author writing YA Superhero fiction. And its actually really good. I have read every book in the series and eagerly await the next one. It follows a group of high school super heroes, and their trials with entering the super hero world, where it turns out that Villains and Heroes for the most part are basically actors with super powers. They do deal with REAL supervillains though.

If you want more, I can give ya more.

There are many great suggestions provided by the other commenters. To add to the list, many young boys cannot part from the adventures of Percy Jackson and the Olympians. It incorporates a lot of Greek mythology (which is not necessary to know a-prior) and is full of action.

he seems legitimately interested

If only there was some book that intertwined all this history into a relatable plot
