Review of Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann
Last night I picked up Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann because it was something I grabbed to read when my boyfriend reads at night when Im at his place. I have finished 75% of it and will finish the rest of it tonight..
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. (from the inside cover)
I liked the characters, the main character at times was believable and interesting to read. Her interactions with other characters helped build her background and gave life to other characters. I enjoyed the character development between Kendall and Jacian and the way they learn a lot from each other. I like the description of the town and the towns people like its a real tiny town.
The last 50 pages of the book is where the story finally takes a turn for what you've been waiting for. It wraps up nice and quickly.
I enjoyed reading the book it was a quick read and had a nice story and a little bit of a twist and paranormal to it to make you interested.
3.5/5 I'd say in this kittens opinion. :)
