The community of Cryer’s Cross, Montana (population 212) is distraught when high school freshman Tiffany disappears without a trace. Already off-balance due to her OCD, 16-year-old Kendall is freaked out seeing Tiffany’s empty desk in the one-room school house, but somehow life goes on... until Kendall's boyfriend Nico also disappears, and also without a trace. Now the town is in a panic. Alone in her depression and with her OCD at an all-time high, Kendall notices something that connects Nico and Tiffany: they both sat at the same desk. She knows it's crazy, but Kendall finds herself drawn to the desk, dreaming of Nico and wondering if maybe she, too, will disappear...and whether that would be so bad. Then she begins receiving graffiti messages on the desk from someone who can only be Nico. Can he possibly be alive somewhere? Where is he? And how can Kendall help him? The only person who believes her is Jacian, the new guy she finds irritating...and attractive. As Kendall and Jacian grow closer, Kendall digs deeper into Nico's mysterious disappearance only to stumble upon some ugly—and deadly—local history. Kendall is about to find out just how far the townspeople will go to keep their secrets buried. -Goodreads-
I had to put this book down multiple times because it was beyond creepy. This book was everything that I would ever want in a scary book. You meet Kendall. Kendall is a girl that lives in a very small town. I mean I think the population is less then 200. And in this small town a couple kids come up missing in a couple months time. This is something that just doesn't happen in this small town. But Kendall is right smack in the middle of it. See her boyfriend is one of the kids that came up missing and she is willing to do anything to find her boyfriend. But during this time she meets Jacian, and she really doesn't know what to think about him because she misses her boyfriend so much. Should she wait to see what happens to her boyfriend, or try to start something with Jacian?
Kendall is a very strong girl to have something mysterious going on in her life. She tries to hold it together. She does a really good job doing it to. Plus I would want her as a friend because she never gives up on her missing boyfriend. She is willing to do anything to find him.
Cryer's Cross is a one of a kind book. I love it. It is such a great story and a very creepy story. I didn't know what to expect with it. I went into this book not knowing anything. I think that that is the best way to go into a book. I loved it even more not knowing anything about it. Lisa McMann you have out done yourself yet again.....
I am giving this book a 5 out 5 stars! Please do yourself a favor....go and get this book and read it....NOW!!!!
