I began reading Cryer's cross yesterday afternoon and finished the book about 6 hours later. I was literally sucked in and could not break the pull the book had on me. The way Lisa McMann wrote this book, its like she put a hex on the book to suck you in. The level of creepy in the book is high and I love it but not in a morbid way. The only downside I will say is I wanted more, maybe a little bit more on what was casing the disappearances in Cryer's cross or maybe I just want the story to keep on going.

We get to meet Kendall that's from Cryer's cross, she is a senior in a school that fits all the student body in one room. She has OCD and you literally count when she counting reading this story. She is also pretty much the girl in her town her age. Her best friend maybe boyfriend, she doesn't want to label him as that, he is Nico and they have grown up together since they were born. They sit next to each other and play soccer together for school and he gets her OCD. Before School starts their senior year, a girl goes missing and the whole town is thrown off balance. The girl is never found and the town begin to settle back to normal around the time school starts and when harvesting is beginning. The school has two new students beginning, they are the grandchildren of one of the town's elderly resident. the family move in to help the old man run his business. We meet Jacian and his sister they moved from a big city and now are stuck in this small town, so Jacian is not a happy camper especially since he is accused of kidnapping the missing girl. Events start to take place and all the sudden now Nico has gone missing and well you can imagine how the town and Kendall are handling this. I will not give anymore , if I do I will spoil the story and we don't want that. Lets just say Cryer's Cross has a past that is coming back to haunt the children of the town. Will they figure it out in time???

Summary: The community of Cryer’s Cross, Montana (population 212) is distraught when high school freshman Tiffany disappears without a trace. Already off-balance due to her OCD, 16-year-old Kendall is freaked out seeing Tiffany’s empty desk in the one-room school house, but somehow life goes on... until Kendall's boyfriend Nico also disappears, and also without a trace. Now the town is in a panic. Alone in her depression and with her OCD at an all-time high, Kendall notices something that connects Nico and Tiffany: they both sat at the same desk. She knows it's crazy, but Kendall finds herself drawn to the desk, dreaming of Nico and wondering if maybe she, too, will disappear...and whether that would be so bad. Then she begins receiving graffiti messages on the desk from someone who can only be Nico. Can he possibly be alive somewhere? Where is he? And how can Kendall help him? The only person who believes her is Jacian, the new guy she finds irritating...and attractive. As Kendall and Jacian grow closer, Kendall digs deeper into Nico's mysterious disappearance only to stumble upon some ugly—and deadly—local history. Kendall is about to find out just how far the townspeople will go to keep their secrets buried.
