YA Book List: Vanishing Girls, Buzz Kill, Trouble is a Friend of Mine

After the Willamette Writers Conference in early August, I came away with notes from two agents who wanted to know what other YA mysteries my YA novel, Wasted in Waldport, was like. I realized I was not reading YA mysteries, because I didn’t want mine to be derivative, even subconsciously. But later, I understood their need to compare prior successes in the YA mystery genre to my book in order to interest publishers. I acquired the three books in the post title and will review each in comparison to my manuscript, Wasted in Waldport.
