Mysterious Stories to Interest Young Readers

As a child, my interest level ranged from the odd to the frightening.  My tastes still prevail today, with my current author of choice being James Patterson.  I didn't care how fast Spot could run, and Jane could use a douse of cool to catch my attention.

There is a site of stories entitled "Weekly Mysteries" I recently ran across.  Some of the stories border on that of Poe, but often mirror the Whodoneit stories that I used to love.  With my favorite character being "Encyclopedia Brown", I sharpened my skills of prediction and powers of deduction trying to outwit the author... or at least my fellow classmates reading the same story.

This site may provide more reading opportunities for your eclectic audience and provide another source of interest to your students.
