5 Awesome And Exciting Mystery Books For Teens

There is nothing quite like a good old mystery book. Why should adults get all the excitement though? Here are 5 awesome and thrilling mystery books for teens.

#1 On a LARP (A Sid Rubin Silicon Alley Adventure)

No Title

No Description

On a LARP introduces readers to teen coder, Sid Rubin, a smartass—and super-smart—high school kid with a strong conscience and a knack for solving problems. This high concept, frenetic ride dives into the fascinating world of interactive role-playing when Sid recognizes the photo of a murder victim during an AP field trip to a police station. What starts out as an Aha! moment soon finds Sid and her unlikely posse of friends chasing a dark web killer through the middle of a live action role playing game.

It is an extremely well-written book with a lesbian protagonist which is not common in mystery books for teens. It is a book you cannot put down. I couldn't put this book down. It combines suspense, humor and twists that keep you wanting to read more.
