This is a great series put out by scholastic that I got via inter-library loan since my local library doesn't own it.

The books are similar to the Nancy Drew Series but with the added twist that the main character is post-lingually deaf.
The mystery and action are great for a teen or tween but somewhat slowed down by the description of ASL.The tediousness of trying to read the details of the signs as they are used may give the reader a better understanding of the deaf teen's frustration when she struggles to communicate with those that hear by reading their lips. Many teens are interested in learning ASL and this gives a good introduction.
She is a strong independent character dealing withmany issues any teen might face (death of a family member, fights with her boyfriend, etc) in addition to the frustration of the ESL language barrier that kids who speak two languages can relate to.
The books are a bit dated because the increased use of computers and cell phones over the last 15 years has expanded the ways that the deaf and the hearing can communicate. I don't think that makes the mysteries any less interesting though.
