"Cryer's Cross" (a spooky review by Lexi)


I'm writing so late tonight, and I'm so sorry. See, I was planning on finishing this novel I'm reading today, but awoke terribly late in the day, and still have sixty pages to go. Since it's 10 p.m., I decided to let myself watch TV instead, including a "Powerpuff Girl" episode where the bad guy was "Professor Dick." You have no clue how bad I was laughing!

Anywho, onto the book review of the night, which is for "Cryer's Cross" by Lisa McCann.

Goodreads Summary: "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..."

So if you want a creepy book, here you go! How about dark historical? Yeppers, read this. Just get that this is based on what used to happen to kids, exposed in the media, which is where the author yanked this idea from. She transformed it into a very engaging novel that will leave you feeling a mix of emotions, some happy, others sad.

The characters, scenes, and overall plot are all amazing, and this novel will truly keep you within its grasp. Also, the romance story is good as well, very well thought out, and even more believable. It was a great subplot in here.
