    This is such a great list!
    I’ve read many of these titles and am so very glad to be reminded of them.
    I, too, couldn’t put down Virals, Traitor, First Shot, Finding Lubchenko, Alchemyst.
    I’m eager to read the others on this list and plan to feature this list as school ends and teens are looking for some fast-paced reads. Thank you, Jennifer…!
