    Just an opinion, but if boys are reading what they want, they're more likely to persevere than any shorter text within their capabilities which they find totally boring.
    I've found,as a very general rule, boys prefer non-fiction about something the're interested in & so I really don't mind if it means they're actually reading. Plus the 'extremely challenging vocabulary' can help them with their reading skills.

    With any of my children I would prefer they are reading something which interests them and that they want to read. Forcing children to read certain texts is how to make them switch off.
