For YA, I always recommend The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin. It won the Newbery Medal.

Great mystery for YA and older readers too!

For mysteries for young readers, the environmental books by Carl Hiaasen are wonderful: Hoot, Flush, Scat, and I see there's a new one I haven't read called Squirm.

When my daughter was getting into reading, I made a deal with her that I would read anything she recommended. These are some of her favorites:

Christopher Golden's BODY OF EVIDENCE forensic mysteries

Lois Duncan's mysteries, including DAUGHTERS OF EVE, KILLING MR. GRIFFIN, I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER, RANSOM, SUMMER OF FEAR, etc.

The Harry Potter books

The Penderwick books

Jennifer Weiner's Bigfoot series

She liked the Twilight books but I didn't get into them.
