YA fiction books NOT written from a female's 1st person perspective (POV)?

I'm a female and during the last couple weeks I've read through a few YA novels (Divergent, The Hunger Games, The House of Night mostly) and although I thoroughly enjoyed either series to some degree, there is something about the fact the fact that they have all written from the same perspective (teenager girl 1st person POV) that, well, it doesn't bother me as I actually do enjoy how it works, but makes me wonder what exactly is out there.
Basically what I'm looking for are books which are NOT written from the perspective of a young woman/teenager. Not because I actually have anything against that (which I obviously don't, as pointed out above) but mostly out of being rather curious about the opposite, a MALE 1ST PERSON POV, especially when it comes to ROMANCE/introversion from a guy's point of view.
What I enjoy in these books:
- Dystopic/post-apocalyptic society (although pretty much any interesting setting is fine by me)
- A dash of romance.
- YA goodness. (which is a very general sort of thing, but books targeted at younger adults/teenagers seem to pick my interest the most)
I'm really not too picky, just looking for new interesting things to read. Thanks a lot in advance for the suggestions!
