Here's a link to a Publishers Weekly article about a ten year-old reluctant reader boy. What’s interesting is that his father is author James Patterson.
I, too, grew up as a reluctant reader, and my father published over 70 books. That’s why I began writing action-adventures & mysteries especially for boys who may also struggle with reading today.
You’ll find the article interesting. http://www.publishersweekly.com/article/CA6631120.html?nid=2788
