Alessio, a teen librarian, writer, and editor, catalogs mysteries and thrillers aimed at teens. She details the characteristics of teens who like mysteries, general aspects of the genre, and readers' advisory questions, then lists titles in the subgenres of realistic mysteries, high-tech mysteries, thrillers, fantastic and paranormal mysteries, mysteries in time and place, romantic suspense, and nonfiction and true crime, along with booktalk examples, suggested grade levels (including indications for books that may interest adults), and ideas for marketing. About 40 program ideas follow, such as puzzle-type programs, mystery dinners, mystery club activities, and book discussions, along with marketing ideas. Most of the titles were published since 2005, but some classic books are listed. Graphic novels are included, and interviews with popular authors appear in each section.
