Way Back When
One of my favorite authors as a teenager was Christopher Pike. I read all the books and requested some of my first inter-library loans to get my hands on his books. Remember Me, The Last Vampire series (I thought I had read every one bit apparently he's released two more books since 2010), Sati, and The Cold One. His books were totally delicious - creepy spine-tinglers that had plot but weren't babyish. His characters get into typical adolescent shenanigans as well as way more serious activities. I probably wouldn't read him now but his books were perfect as a voracious teen reader. Not to mention a lot of his covers were fairly innocous so it was pretty easy to disguise what you were reading.
