The YA Books Your Favorite YA Authors Can’t Stop Raving About
Ally Condie
Author of
The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe and the
Matched Trilogy

Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson, and its sequel, The Vanishing Stair (which just released in January!). I am a sucker for a murder mystery, and this book/series has everything a reader could ever want. A great main character, Stevie, who is interesting, original, funny, and smart. A fantastic setting (a glamorous old home/school in Vermont). It also boasts a wonderful cast of supporting characters, stunning twists and turns, and a haunting, clever mystery-within-a-mystery in the form of an unsolved kidnapping from decades ago. The whole thing is heart-poundingly good, and just plain fun to read.”
