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

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.

The Spring Awakening OBC And The Search For The Random Microphones

It was 2007, and everyone was super bummed about John Gallagher Jr. leaving the show with in the next few weeks or so. “Who am I gonna laugh on stage at inappropriate times with anymore?” sighed Jonathan Groff, who had called a meeting with the whole OBC except John Gallagher Jr. “Who will annoy with their constant guitar playing now?” asked Phoebe Strole. “I’ve got an idea!” announced Lea Michele. “WHAT?” everyone said in unison. “We’ll hold a scavenger hunt in the Eugene O'Neill Theatre.” said Lea. “Johnny can have one good last walk around the theatre before leaving. And at the end of his hunt, there’ll be a huge party!” “But what will he be looking for?” asked Lilli Cooper. Everyone sat and thought. “I’ve got it!” said Remy Zaken. “We’ll hide the random microphones we use in the show! If it’s something that’s very important to the show, he’ll be even more determined.”
“That’s very smart!” said Lauren Pritchard. “I’m up for it!” said Skylar Astin. “Let’s do it!” said Gideon Glick. “I’m here, too!” said Krysta Rodriguez. “Krysta, what are you doing here?” asked Jonathan B. Wright. “You’re in the ensemble.” “One day I won’t be an understudy!” said Krysta. “Sure…” said Brian Johnson. “Quick question,” said Jonathan Groff. “Why is there so many people in the cast that have names that include John?” “Beats the fuck outta me.” said Matt Doyle, appearing from the shadows. “MATT DOYLE?!” everyone exclaimed. “Are you even in the cast at this period of time yet?” asked Skylar Astin. “Now we can ask questions,” said Matt. “Or we can go hide random microphones and give John Gallagher Jr. the best leaving-the-show party ever!” “LET’S HIDE SOME MICROPHONES!” yelled Remy as she ran to wherever the fuck they kept those things. “YEAH!” everyone yelled as they followed Remy. When everyone got to wherever the fuck they kept their microphones, they were all surprised to find that every single microphone was missing. “Who could have done such a thing?” asked Lilli Cooper. “It was me!!!” everyone looked up to see John Gallagher Jr. from behind a rather tall chair. “Why did you do this?” asked Krysta Rodriguez. “Krysta, get the fuck outta here.” said Jonathan B Wright. “Fuck you, John!” said Krysta. “What did I do?” asked Jonathan Groff. “Oh, forget it!” said Krysta as she marched off. “Why did you do it?” asked Lauren Pritchard. “I heard you guys talking, and I wasn’t about to let you guys hide the microphones.” said John. “But, why?” asked Phoebe. “Because we have a show in the next hour.” said John Gallagher Jr. “They need to be in their places. You guys really need to get better at keeping track of time.“ “That explains why I’m wearing a school boy’s outfit!” said Matt Doyle. “You’re not even in the show yet, man!” said Skylar Astin. “I have dreams!” said Matt Doyle, as he strutted to the stage door. “Well, I’m gonna go eat a cookie.” said Gideon Glick. “I could go for one, too.” said Lilli Cooper. “Me, too.” said Krysta Rodriguez. “FOR FUCKS SAKE KRYSTA! FINE, YOU CAN HAVE A FUCKING COOKIE, BUT THAT’S IT!” said Jonathan B. Wright. And with that, everyone ate a cookie and everyone was happy. Except for Matt Doyle, who later that night broke the microwave because he forgot to take the fork out of his bowl of Ramen Noodles. But in the end, Matt was okay. So, yeah, everyone was somewhat happy (but still bummed because John Gallagher Jr. was still leaving.) THE END.

A day in infamy

December 7, 1941, started as a typical Sunday morning at Pearl Harbor, the US Navy’s Pacific Fleet Headquarters on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. That is, until shortly before 8:00 am, when Japan launched roughly 200 planes from six aircraft carriers in its first wave of Operation Hawaii—forever to be known by Americans as “the attack on Pearl Harbor” or just “Pearl Harbor.”

Today we remember the lives of approximately 2,400 Americans that were lost and more than 1,100 wounded. Marines, sailors, soldiers, airmen who paid the ultimate sacrifice. We remember the day that rallied our nation to enter World War II.

TVLine: True Blood’s Nelsan Ellis to Play Shinwell Johnson

True Blood‘s Nelsan Ellis is joining Elementary Season 5 for a three-episode arc as Shinwell Johnson, a character who first appeared in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s 1924 story, “The Illustrious Client.”

Elementary’s modern take sees Shinwell as a former drug dealer who’s struggling to get his life back on track after a long stint in prison. A surgical patient of Watson’s more than a decade ago, Shinwell reappears in her life as a helpful tipster in a murder investigation.

He begins working with Sherlock and Joan, leveraging various illicit connections from his past to help the pair solve cases. But the more time he spends navigating New York’s underworld, the closer he gets to sliding back into the life he’s so desperate to leave behind.

Ellis will debut as Shinwell in Elementary‘s Season 5 premiere on Sunday, Oct. 2 at 10/9c.


“Samantha has a unique ability to embody whatever a song asks of her, that’s an incredible talent, and I think it’s what separates her from other people in her field. There’s never a moment’s doubt about who the character is when Sam Barks is singing the song, and that’s true whether she’s onstage in Les Miz or you’re in the pub and it’s three o'clock in the morning and you’ve had a few pints and she’s singing an old English folk song. It’s a very unique and special thing to find somebody who can do that.” — Alan Doyle on Samantha Barks.

EW: Elementary star Lucy Liu on Watson’s new mission

Does Watson still want to be an investigator?

Where are we picking up with Joan this season?
Lucy Liu:
This season they are stressing that she is not so much ambivalent, but that Sherlock is convinced that she might take off, because she’s never really stayed in a job for a certain amount of time. She was a sober companion for a certain amount of time, and now that she’s been a detective, it’s almost about that time that she can’t really stay. She’s got wanderlust in terms of a career. She was a surgeon, then she was a sober companion, then she left to be a detective, and he’s a little concerned about that. She’s saying no, but he sees that she may decide to leave. The question is: Will she leave him? He’s noticed that she’s been depressed, and he wants to know why.

EW’s Fall TV Preview 2016: Will Joan and Sherlock split?

When Elementary returns, Sherlock and Watson will be celebrating their anniversary of working together — but will it be their last?

With Joan now having worked longer as a detective than as a sober companion, Sherlock begins to fear her professional wanderlust. “When the season starts, Sherlock comments that Watson has seemed down in the dumps over the course of the summer,” EP Rob Doherty tells EW. “He’s concerned that maybe the sadness that he has detected has something to do with the approach of this anniversary.”

“Joan makes it clear that she’s quite happy being a detective, but at the same time she misses helping people,” he continues. “It’s something that she could do when she was a surgeon, it’s something she could do when she was a sober companion, but, as she says in the first episode, she and Sherlock are in the punishment business.”

Enter reformed criminal and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle character Shinwell Johnson (True Blood’s Nelsan Ellis), whom Sherlock encourages Joan to assist. Shinwell, who is transitioning out of jail, is a former patient of Joan’s from when she was a surgeon, and serves as a reminder of the good she can do. But there will be complications, of course. “He is someone with a dark and troubled past, who is trying to reform himself, but he brings a lot of baggage to our doorstep,” Doherty says, noting that as the duo come to learn more about Johnson, “there may be a difference of opinion on whether keeping him in their orbit is such a good idea.”
