This week my book beginning is from Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann. This is a mystery about kids disappearing from a small town in Montana told by an OCD high school senior named Kendall. She is upset when 9th grade Tiffany disappears at the end of the school year. There are only 24 students in the one-room high school she attends. Tiffany's loss throws Kendall. She spends the summer on the tractor coming up with more and more scenarios to explain her disappearance. But she is even more upset when her best friend Nico disappears the next Fall. Strange things are happening in the town of Cryer's Cross.
Everything changes when Tiffany Quinn disappears.After this simple beginning, the mystery ratchets up in a hurry. It is fascinating to see through the eyes of someone with OCD who has to have her routines and who routinely counts things.
I am reading the eARC that I got as a part of Simon & Schuster's Galley Grab program. The book will be published on February 8, 2011.
