Short diary, random question.
Mostly for Doctor Who fans, but all suggestions are welcome.
My son is 13. He hates to read. Really hates it.
He lately has gotten really into the English sci-fi series Doctor Who. I never knew he had a thing for sci-fi, but it got me thinking that maybe I can find some good books that will get him reading without resorting to threats of violence or bodily harm.
So, if you are a Doctor Who fan, or a sci-fi fan in general, and you were to imagine you were thirteen again, what recommendations would you make for reading materials?

It just goes to show you what a visceral memory reading makes for us.
I have so many leads now, thank you so, so much.
And, in conclusion, we can all agree that Catcher in The Rye sucks big time. :)
