I'm aching to read 17 & GONE by Nova Ren Suma. Her earlier book IMAGINARY GIRLS is a lush, literary thriller.

THE NIGHT SHE DISAPPEARED by April Henry

THE BODY FINDER by Kimberly Derting

For a creepy thriller that borders on horror: HENRY FRANKS by Peter Salomon

I recently loved HYSTERIA by Megan Miranda. Edge of my seat read.

When I Was Joe by Keren David is one of my absolute favorites. It's about a boy who witnesses a stabbing in London, and has to go into witness protection to protect himself from a gang that wants revenge.

I see an April Henry book on the list already, but "Girl, Stolen" is extra-amazingly well done.

NERVE by our own Jeanne Ryan
CRASH by Lisa McMann (also here now and then -- her WAKE trilogy is also wonderful)
All of Brian Faulkner's books (my favorite is probably either BRAIN JACK or THE TOMORROW CODE)
NO SAFETY IN NUMBERS by Dayna Lorentz

I've heard great things about Ilsa Bick's ASHES trilogy. I think only the first two books are out now.

Oh! I thought of another one. WHAT WE SAW AT NIGHT by Jacquelyn Mitchard is an awesome mystery-thriller that I read recently.

I'm piggybacking on this thread - looking for thrillers also. :) I wondered if anyone here has read The Face on the Milk Carton? I have it in my cart ready to get along with some of these. I'm mostly looking for thrillers that have that "edge of your seat" pacing, but in YA...

Film school grad. Time traveller. Billy Bragg fan. Canadian/Irish novelist of character-driven fiction from sci-fi to slice of life.

Thank you!
