 Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann
Review by Tiffany, Librarian, Rincon Valley & Sebastopol

Imagine living in a town so small that all the high schoolers are in the same classroom, all day with the same teacher.  Now imagine being in that town and having one of the girls disappear without a trace.  That's how this story opens.

Kendall, a senior in a small Montana town, didn't know Tiffany Quinn  that well.  But when Tiffany goes missing, Kendall becomes curious.  Kendall, who battles with obsessive compulsive disorder, becomes even more concerned when her best friend, Nico, disappears without a trace, as well.  What is happening to this small little town?  Is she next?

Why I picked it up:  I've heard a lot of buzz about this title, so I was curious about it.  Also, I read Wake, which is written by the same author, and thought it was a good concept.  While I didn't like Wake that well, I thought the author had potential and I wanted to see if this book was better. 

Why I finished it:  I was glued to the pages from start to finish.  It was a gripping story and I had to know what happened to Tiffany and Nico. 

I'd give it to:  Anyone who enjoys suspense.  Fans of Gail Giles will enjoy Cryer's Cross
