A great book always prompts me to think about new subjects; I know I really like a book when I can’t wait to research certain aspects of it. When I read I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga (2012 Quick Picks for Young Adults, 2013 Best Fiction for Young Adults), I was instantly drawn into Jazz’s world and couldn’t help but be fascinated by a boy who grew up with a serial killer for a dad and went on to team up with police to solve a copycat case. Not only did I want to know more about the forensic science touched on in the book, I was intrigued enough to want to know more about what makes someone capable of such violence. Here are some nonfiction titles that fans of I Hunt Killers can read to learn more about the topics the book explores.
