By Teens, For Teens – Sherlock Holmes Read-Alikes

Posted about 2 years ago by Jennifer Deuell

Welcome back to our By Teens, For Teens blog series! Apologies that it’s been awhile since our last post. We hope you’ve been reading some awesome books during the wait. This edition of By Teens, For Teens is brought to you by David G., age 14. He says that teens who enjoyed reading the mysteries of Sherlock Holmes will “definitely be interested in reading these young adult mystery novels.” We hope you agree! If you see something you like, be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for catalog links to these books. Feel free to put one (or more) on hold!
