A few years ago, I discovered YA mystery books and teenage thrillers. I loved reading about young amateur sleuths and the murder mysteries they solved so much that I devoured oodles of them. Since I prefer amateur detective stories anyway, high school mystery novels strike the right cord for me. And they probably will for you as well. Grab your favorite drink and a stack of these YA thrillers and find somewhere comfortable to read. Ellery and her brother move to Echo Ridge, a small town where homecoming queens go missing, sinister messages abound, and mysteries are never solved.
