Waiting on Wednesday (20) - Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann

8:31 PM

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: Feb 8, 2011

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.

Something's not right in Cryer's Cross-and Kendall's about to find out just how far the townspeople will go to keep their secrets buried.

I really enjoyed reading Lisa McMann's Wake trilogy so it should come as no surprise that I'm looking forward to her latest upcoming release Cryer's Cross. The cover is simple yet creepy at the same time, and with a plot description that sounds as good as this one, it sounds like readers will be constantly kept on their toes about what's truly going on in the small town of Cryer's Cross. I also can't wait to see if Lisa McMann will be bringing back her oh-so distinctive style of writing that is found in the Wake books!
