9 YA Mysteries To Solve Before Summer Is Over

Sun, surf, sand, and secrets that drive us mad trying to solve them – that’s how we like to spend summers. Read on for our list of favorite YA mysteries that are ANYTHING but elementary:

1. Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly

Clue you’ll love it: Despite being dragged along through insane situations on a missing persons investigation, you’re somehow LOLing most of the time – and it feels 100% on point.

2. Nearly Gone and Nearly Found by Elle Cosimano

Clue you’ll love it: You’ll redefine #lifegoals when you meet Nearly Boswell, a high schooler who has a knack for tracking down serial killers…even when SHE’s being tracked.

3. The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle

Clue you’ll love it: A supernatural element adds higher stakes to the question of whether the fact that Cara’s family becomes inexplicably accident-prone every October is a coincidence…or a curse.

3. Daughter of Deep Silence by Carrie Ryan 

Clue you’ll love it: Vengeance is SO much more intriguing when the narrator isn’t only messing with the people around her – but with you as well.

4. The Edge of Nowhere, The Edge of the Water, and The Edge of the Shadows by Elizabeth George

Clue you’ll love it: If you ever thought escaping to the wilderness would solve your problems, you might reconsider after you unearth the secrets on Whidby Island.

5. The Shades of London series by Maureen Johnson 

Clue you’ll love it: You’ll still want to visit London even after tagging along on Lousiana teen Rory’s boarding school extracurriculars of evading serial killers and fraternizing with secret ghost police.

6. The Mickey Bolitar series by Harlan Coben

Clue you’ll love it: The adrenaline factor. High schooler Mickey’s life is a train-wreck after his father dies and mother goes to rehab, but it only gets more intense when he gets sucked into secrets, a seedy underworld, and a major conspiracy that may be closer to home than he thought.

7. I Was Here by Gayle Forman

Clue you’ll love it: Although Cody’s on the hunt to figure out exactly what happened when her best friend Meg left, the real mystery of what’s inside someone’s heart is way more difficult to solve.

8. Paper Towns by John Green

Clue you’ll love it: A mystery that culminates in a spontaneous 21-hour road trip is the best kind of mystery.
