the year of the YA Mystery? Soooo many great ones came out this year! In looking over my reading list, I realized YA mysteries made up 75% of my reading material, closely followed by Middle Grade mysteries and YA thrillers. As the year winds to a close, I thought I'd share some of my favorite YA mysteries from 2012. I read a LOT of great novels this year, but the titles on this list are ones that really resonated with me -- or haunted me. A disclaimer: This is a completely unofficial list, based on no measurable criteria except pure gut feeling: I LOVED THESE BOOKS.
