5 young adult fiction picks

"UNCOMMON CRIMINALS," by Ally Carter, Hyperion Book CH, $16.99, 304 pages (f) Next » 2 of 5 « Prev
Ally Carter is the queen of the teenage-girl action novel. In the second book in the Heist Society series, Kat is asked to steal the Cleopatra diamond and return it to its rightful owners. An easy task for the girl that pulled off a heist in the greatest museum in the world. Except that the diamond hasn’t been seen in public for 30 years and, of course, it’s cursed.

"Uncommon Criminals" is full of intrigue, world travel and very cute boys. Teenage girls will love Kat and her adventures, probably almost as much as they love Hale. The heists planned by Kat and her crew are clever and imaginative. As a bonus, this book has zero questionable content and will be loved by young and old readers alike.

It looks like all these books are for teen girls. Next time you offer suggestions, how about something on the teen guy side. Yes teen guys like to read too

"The Maze Runner" series is a good read for young males. Pathfinder by Orson Scott Card is great, too.

I just finished Divergent, and I think it's at least as much a teen guy book as a teen girl book, just like Hunger Games (though less violent and depressing than the Hunger Games). I highly recommend both it and Supernaturally.
