Have a favorite YA mystery or thriller?

Have a favorite YA mystery or thriller? Now you can share it with dozens of librarians and maybe hundreds of kids. In October, I’ll be speaking to librarians from Oregon and Washington at a two-state conference.

My topic? Mysteries and Thrillers: The Gateway Drug for Reluctant Readers.

I will admit, though, that I have not actually thought this topic through, except that I do believe a mystery or thriller can draw in kids who otherwise might shy away from reading.

Got any thoughts on the topic? Got a favorite book you would like me to share with librarians? Let me know.
