Cryer’s Cross by Lisa McMann

My Rating: 4 stars


Kendall lives in a small town, Cryer’s Cross, which has dirt roads, tons of farmland and a school that can fit all four years of high school students into one classroom. Kendall is the only girl in her senior class, and Nico has been her best friend since she was little. The small town is filled with fear after a freshman girl disappears in the spring, but when someone else disappears – someone who is very important to Kendall – the town knows for sure that it isn’t just some random kidnapper. Something weird is going on here, and Kendall has to find out. Driven by her OCD-controlled brain, Kendall sets out to find the secrets of Cryer’s Cross.
Lisa McMann is the author of the Wake trilogy, so it’s obvious to say that I was pretty excited when I bought this book. Thankfully, I wasn’t disappointed. This book really kept me wanting more. I don’t want to say too much because I could risk giving too much of the plot away, especially all the components of the disappearances. The one tiny part I didn’t like was how easy it was to predict who would disappear next… But overall this book was a really, really good read and I can’t wait for the next one.
