Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann

"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 don't really know how I feel about this book. It was kind of weird. The first 3/4 or so of the book is good...but, nothing really exciting or unusual. Then, all of a sudden it starts reading like a Stephen King novel. Basically, most of the plot is crammed into the last few chapters.

It was interesting, but I wish that the "excitement" was spread out a little more throughout the book.
