Book Series Help For Young Adults?

The 11 year old in the family likes to read, a boy, and wants to read a series but he can't find any that look interesting. He reads at a high level, so no kids books. He is looking for good series' but a good single book he would appreciate. Any ideas?

Thanks!!

Update:

Thanks! Any more anyone?

Update 2:

Also, he doesn't like the knights and armor and stuff too much. Realistic fiction more? I don't know. Whatever you guys have. :)

Update 3:

Rainbow's gravity...? Huh?

Update 4:

He's in 6th grade but reads at 8th or 9th grade levels.

    Ummm. I would have said Wolf Brother. Its a fantastic book for young adults. What grade level does he read at? Great 200 or 300 page books. The series is "Chronicles of Ancient Darkness" by Michelle Paver!

    Dragonspell and sequels Donita ok. Paul The darkish is turning out to be sequence Susan Cooper (so lots extra effective than the action picture) the secret Circle Trilogy, Forbidden sport Trilogy and darkish Visions Trilogy all by using L J Smith (no vampires, yet she wrote different books with vampires) The Rover and sequels Mel Odom Solstice wood by using Patricia McKillip The Xanth sequence by using Piers Anthony that may no longer a YA sequence and has extra innuendo than certainly intercourse scenes. Pun crammed.

    I really recommend the City Of Bones, although it has some romance in it but only teenage kissing. It's very interesting and I loved the writing Cassandra Clare used, it was filled with metaphors and descriptions and it was splendid. :) They're actually making the fourth book right now! Here's a list I EXTREMELY enjoyed (in order)

    The Mortal Instruments (City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass)

    The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingbird) THEY'RE MAKING A MOVIE!!!

    I totally recommend these. I loved The Mortal Instruments more but The Hunger Games is more PG-13. It's about survival and could certainly teach your boy. :)

    The Ranger's Apprentice series is GREAT. Also, Ender's Game, and Ender's Shadow are good as they go hand in hand

    How high? "Gravity's Rainbow" high, or "Twilight" high?

    EDIT: 8th grade huh? "Gravity's Rainbow" is out I guess.

    Has he discovered the joy of Discworld?
