Yes, they can be. They can teach lessons, depending on which one they read. Some to me were purely entertainment reading. Like, "Stranger with my face", where she was rediscovering herself and seeing herself in a new light. It was a kind of growing up and realizing that you may not like all of yourself inside and out book.

Answer by  Allison (187)

While it depends on the reader level, most Lois Duncan books should be appropriate for young teens. Much of her work falls in the mystery or suspense genres, and so they can be frightening, but in terms of difficulty they are classified as young adult novels and should be appropriate.
