Kendall is desperate to find out what happened. An evil school desk that is possessed by the souls of boys who were murdered at the school years before. What Kendall first dismisses as impossible is actually possible and can't be ignored. That's not to say it wasn't good. It is nice to read about someone who's able to manage the disorder without medicating herself as in the case of Kendall. After two teens are gone missing, the people of the town are shaken and especially Kendall Fletcher. Enthralling, creepy and sooo good!! Although I haven't seen any definite proof of a sequel, I would not be surprised.
Plus, the ending to the book was disturbing and extremely unique. I liked Nico because he was a nice guy. La parte de atras me vendió un libro con el que me iba a morir de miedo y ha sido un poco tirar el dinero. That is a total of 124 hours and 56 minutes of tremendous storytelling. Take a look at the cover. It's almost similar with the Dreamcatcher series in terms of its sparse prose, and yet Cryer's Cross has a more poetic feel about it with how the town was described and the people who live there.
For a book with a lot of menace lingering about, there is very little action. To me, it was definitely creepy and reminiscent of all the horrific stories I was told growing up. I saw this in Cryer's Cross. Or, at least, it appears as though she is. I recommend this for reluctant readers, although I doubt boys would be too interested. The setting is menaicng and I love the whodunnit aspect with missing girls.
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. 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. And wasn't that a sweet thing? The tension builds, and between chapters, eerie messages of 'We' and 'Us' only add to the suspense. Plus it is down right creepy! The book was published in multiple languages including English language, consists of 233 pages and is available in Paperback format. But once I read on I fell totally in love with this face paced, punctuated style! This book was short, which is both a good thing and a bad thing. So, we're supposed to believe that dozens of teen boys died without investigation of whippings in 1960.
I liked the idea and I like how Lisa McMann writes but I wasn't enjoying the perspective it was told. It has to be powerful to get me. I know to some it was a disappointment in the end when the killer is revealed. Also, if you like psychological thrillers and horror, you might give this one a try. I couldn't imagine sharing a classroom with the entire high school and know each and everyone there.
I like Marlena right away, she is the other girl in Kendall's grade and she takes the time to explain her brother, and be friendly to K. The tension builds with every page and only in the last quarter of the book does McMann begin to even give you a hint of what is going down in this sleepy little town. I speak to Lisa all the time on twitter and she's so sweet and attentive to her readers. Someone with real life problems and disorders and it is those flaws guiding her through the novel. We move, a chess piece in the dark room, cast-iron legs a centimeter at a time, crying out in silent carved graffiti.
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. And of course he's totally ripped and most of the attraction between them started mostly because Kendall saw him sans shirt. Then I went to another author event and bought the third one. Voices within the desk lure unsuspecting kids in a one-room Montana schoolhouse to the graveyard of a bad boys reform school, where they were compelled to bury themselves alive.

It was obvious that Nico was going to go missing, and their relationship had very little chemistry, but I still have hope. Kendall loves her home; however, she can't help but want more. I can't believe how amazing McMann is. Even though it will mean leaving Nico, the world's sweetest boyfriend, behind. I think I liked it more than I disliked it. I absolutely adored the fact pacing of the book, it's a page turner and the sharp writing style never gets boring. I had mixed feelings at times.
Yes, you got that right. Heart of stone over here. History alone can be the monster in the closet. Now, what I wish the story had was more of the dark history. She winds up making an unlikely friend in the process, one who might just save her life. We move, a chess piece in a dark room, cast-iron legs moving a centimeter at a time, crying out in silent carved graffiti. The summer before, one of the teen girls in the community disappeared without a trace.
