#1 Eragon (Inheritance Cycle, Book 1) by Christopher Paolini
This is a four book fantasy series about a boy, a dragon, and a land of magic and war. I haven't read it because it is 528 pages long. And they just keep getting longer. Book 2, Eldest, is 704 pages. I pass. But Boy Reader gives it five smiley faces, and keeps trying to wear me down. This book is marketed to the 10-14 year old crowd.
#2 Genius: The Game by Leopoldo Gout
A teenage programming genius uses his skills to find his missing brother. I just never got around to it when we had it from the library. Boy Genius adores sciences, computers and programming, which appear to be the main themes of the book. Marketed to teens.
#3 Ender's Game (The Ender Quintet) by Orson Scott Card
This dystopian science fiction book from the '80's depicts a boy who is conscripted into a leadership role where he becomes Earth's last hope. Boy Reader confesses that he was probably too young to read it when he did (@ age 11). The age of the protagonist made me think it was MG, but this is marketed as YA. I haven't read it because I saw the movie first, and have trouble going from movie to book. (Book to movie = no problem!)
