Booklist: YA Thrillers!

As the school year winds down and we start thinking of our summer plans, we often include a list of books to read.  Kelly Dickinson’s booklist featured on YALSA’s (Young Adult Library Services Association) blog The Hub recommends some young adult thrillers for the coming months.  Dickinson says the novels “take advantage of careful pacing to build suspense and hook readers from their opening lines.”  The narrators of these stories are hiding secrets: “from other characters, from the reader, and from themselves.”  You can check out the post for more details on her recommended reading:
