Hi Lora:


Here are some options. They have all been reviewed on Kiss the Book, so she
can go there and read about them.  Also - If multicultural isn't the
biggest issue, she can also look at the label "Boys will be boys", as there
are many interesting boy books there, they are just usually modern
Caucasian boys.
