Review of Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann

by - November 23, 2010

The small town of Cryer's Cross is rocked by tragedy when an unassuming freshman disappears without a trace. Kendall Fletcher wasn’t that friendly with the missing girl, but the angst wreaks havoc on her OCD - addled brain.
When a second student goes missing - someone close to Kendall’s heart - the community is in an uproar. Caught in a downward spiral of fear and anxiety, Kendall’s not sure she can hold it together. When she starts hearing the voices of the missing, calling out to her and pleading for help, she fears she’s losing her grip on reality. But when she finds messages scratched in a desk at school - messages that could only be from the missing student who used to sit there - Kendall decides that crazy or not, she’d never forgive herself if she didn’t act on her suspicions.

Lisa McMann doesn't waste time laying the story out - as soon as you start reading the small town of Cryer's Cross are searching for Tiffany, the first person who goes missing. Soon after another person goes missing and Kendall is left devastated and alone. After this, the book slows right down, concentrating more on Kendall and Jacián's relationship. I didn't mind this, I thought it tied in well with the story and gave you a chance to see how the small town was coping with the loss of two teenagers. Kendall's OCD is wonderfully well written and a great opportunity to see what it is like for someone with it to cope with loss. Every few chapters gives you mysterious messages that are impossible to understand until you reach the book's thrilling conclusion.
