What's a good scary/horror/suspense book for teens?

Report as

The Gone Series (a modern day supernatural Lord of the Flies)
Unwind (if you're under eighteen and your parents/state don't want you, you can be legally unwound and have your body parts sold)
A Great and Terrible Beauty (a witch living during Victorian times)
Oblivion Road (when five teenagers get lost in the wilderness with a serial killer on the loose, you know it's going to get bloody. There's a twist by the way :))
Losing Christina (Christina's "foster parents" have something out for kids)
Bar Code Tattoo (In the future everyone is marked by a tattoo on their arm. It gets really creepy.)

That's just some off of the top of my head. Of course Stephen King is pretty creepy too, but I aways get too freaked out to finish one of his.

It. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is also suspenseful, and that is probably my favorite book as of right now

"The Cheater" and "The Dare" by R.L. Stine were both pretty good. Also, "Die Softly" and "Remember Me 2: The Return" by Christopher Pike. Those are some of my favorites.

Well a good suspense book is "Unwind" (there's 3 books to it but only two have came out so far) it's good because u seriously get shocked by the things that happen & how it ends & you just can't wait to find out what's gonna happen...I love them so much that I read them about 4 times each already & I hate reading but they're so worth it! But it's not a scary book

No freakin way! I loved Unwind, but I had no idea he wrote sequals!!! Thank you so much for posting this. I'm going to have to put the sequals on hold. Unwind is one of the scariest books I've ever read.

Stolen and 13 Reasons Why are both very good. They're not too scary or suspenseful, but they are really great reads.

I don't know if it is really for teens, but I like to read books by Jean Lowery Nixon. She's a great author in mystery and suspense. Or you could try Zilpha Keatley Snyder. Sorry if they're not teen or the type you were looking for. But I hope this helps! :)
