Looking for recommendations for books for a young 13 yr old boy. I'd say his reading age is probably more like 11 though.
He likes adventure books, comedy, mystery.

Thank you, I don't think he's read either of those so I'll suggest them.

The London Eye Mystery/Guggenheim Mystery

The High Rise Mystery/Mic Drop

The Adventures on Trains series (and other MG Leonard books like Beetle Boy)

The Cogheart Series by Peter Bunzl

Abi Elphinstone books

Vashti Hardy books

The Reader Teacher has good suggestion for year 6s that might be the right kind of level.
