So my 11 year old loved Tzviki Green and Kids Speak. TMI

What other books are out there for this age?

Also, my 13 year old has read secular books for a long time and is maxing out on middle grade books that I'm ok with. (I preread them all first.) I feel like all of the Jewish books out there that he would like are all really geared towards adults. I don't want him reading about husband/wife relationships, or family drama, or things like that. Any ideas for books that are just adventure, or historical fiction (again, without drama) or things like that?

My son has read the whole Jewish library twice at least. Do you have one in your city its great.

He likes Avner gold, marcus lehman, meir uri gottesman, m keenan. TONS of comics I cant really keep the authors straight.

He recently read the biography of A'Peer and after swearing he hates biographies he loved it. Its by nachman seltzer.

He read this huge novel called the Will and really liked it. Its by chaim greenbaum. Another recent book was Wanted by Yonah Sapir. I think he has two other books he wrote as well.

If your teen likes adventure/drama but you just don't want it to be adult/mature drama, maybe look for the action novels that were trending in the 90s/aughts. Minimal psychology, zero romance, lots of Nazis. Gordian Knot, Calculated Risk, Time Bomb, I don't remember other titles but those are the genre I'm thinking of.

11 year olds around me are all into the graphic novels.
