Welcome back to another “By Teens, For Teens” post! This week we have two read-alikes lists created by VolunTEEN Diya, age 15. Do you enjoy psychological thrillers? Something dark and twisty? Then Lock the Doors by Vincent Ralph is for you! And, if you enjoy Lock the Doors, then check out the other books on Diya’s read-alikes list. More in the mood for something moody and dramatic?
