Cryer's Cross

Cryer's Cross
by Lisa McMann

Kendall's entire life has been as predictable as the numbers she counts to keep calm.  In her small town, with her friend/boyfriend, Nico, and the familiar routine of farm life, school, soccer, and dance, Kendall has everything she needs to keep her OCD fairly under control.

But things change when Tiffany disappears.

One day she's there.  The next day she isn't.

Kendall's daily routines are shot as the town searches frantically for Tiffany.

Over time, the town gives up, and things seem to go back to normal.  But now someone new disappears and it's personal to Kendall.

Suddenly, messages begin to appear on a desk in the classroom.  Messages that could lead to the answers... or the end of everything.

Can she find him before it's too late?  Or will she be the next one to disappear?

Final thoughts:  A light spine-tingling horror/thriller that's more about Kendall than it is about the mystery itself.  I liked Kendall and found her to be extremely relatable, even with the OCD driving so many of her thoughts.  Jaci├ín was interesting to read, as well.  I wish their relationship could have been fleshed out more.  The ending seemed a bit rough, but went well with the overall story.  Definitely a good read for someone wanting a story that might give him/her the creeps, but also wants to sleep at night.

Rating: 4/5
