when you speak of recommendations to parents for male readers, it seems to me that you're addressing a much younger audience.

I don't know if I answered this on my lj, but I wanted to do so here. The audience I mean isn't that much younger, and with reluctant readers of any sex, my experience is that parents are still trying to get them hooked even into their college years. Even sibs join in if the sibs are bookoholics. That's why I addressed parents--it's usually they who come up to me at public appearances and ask what I'd recommend.
