Could you follow that title? I tried several times to make it less confusing, but each attempt ended up more convoluted, so here we are. In honor of the wonderful SHELTER by Harlan Coben, a fantastically successful writer of mysteries for adults (I adore his Myron Bolitar novels), I am listing the best YA and MG novels littering my shelves from writers who usually write for adults. These are all writers whose adult novels I read as well, so that criterion eliminated some books from contention.
1. Peter Abrahams: DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE (and the rest of the Echo Falls Mysteries) and REALITY CHECK
2. Harlan Coben: SHELTER
3. Carl Hiaasen: HOOT, FLUSH, and SCAT
4. Stephen King: THE EYES OF THE DRAGON
