  1. Thanks for this list! Some of these I had heard of but didn’t know they had male MCs/narrators like An Ember in the Ashes. Another good male lead one is “The Knife of Never Letting Go” by Patrick Ness if you’re interested in finding some more titles!


  2. Great list. Like iloveheartlandx, I’m so glad the Percy Jackson series, HP series and The Raven Boys made it. I also agree with her that so many YA books come from a female POV. As a mother of two teenage boys who are voracious readers, I wish there was a higher proportion of male POV YA.
