Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads
Title: Cryer's Cross
Author: Lisa McMann
Year Published: 2011
Synopsis: Kendall loves her life in small town Cryer's Cross, Montana, but she also longs for something more. She knows the chances of going to school in New York are small, but she's not the type to give up easily. Even though it will mean leaving Nico, the world's sweetest boyfriend, behind.
But when Cryer's Cross is rocked by unspeakable tragedy, Kendall shoves her dreams aside and focuses on just one goal: help find her missing friends. Even if it means spending time with the one boy she shouldn't get close to... the one boy who makes her question everything she feels for Nico.
Determined to help and to stay true to the boy she's always loved, Kendall keeps up the search--and stumbles upon some frightening local history. She knows she can't stop digging, but Kendall is about to find out just how far the townspeople will go to keep their secrets buried....
Why?: I have read a few Lisa McMann novels before and I always find them enjoyable. They usually are for a younger audience, but they have worlds that are fun to imagine.
Expectations: I'm expecting a thriller for a younger audience. Maybe a few scary situations that will make me want to turn the pages rapidly.
Judging a book by its cover: The cover reminds me of a scary show or book from the 90's for kids, like Are You Afraid of the Dark? or Goosebumps. The old desk with scratches into it is creepy.
