(Maximum Ride by James Patterson) is just a great series for young readers. It opens up windows in the imagination . I would recommend anything by Matthew Reilly particularly his Scarecrow series as like Maximum Ride they are well written and an. imaginative ones. To exercise the imagination I would recommend the Skulduggery Pleasant series perhaps as they are also an engaging read with more. Bar Code Trilogy by Suzanne Weyn would be a good series for teenagers. It really inspires you to think about things. to read. The Hunger Games trilogy. The series by Lauren Kate, Fallen, and the Giver series by Lois Lowry are highly recommended.
