Cryer's Cross: Book Review

by Lisa McMann

Why did I pick this book?
Peer-pressure.  I kept seeing it popping up on blogs and couldn't resist when I saw it at the library.

First Chapter: Mysterious and short
Prediction based upon first chapter: (3)

Main Players: Kendal Fletcher, Nico Cruz, and Jacian Obregon
Place: Cryer's Cross, Montana

Early Impressions:
I am thinking this book seriously reminds my of movies by M. Night Shyalaman.

Moments Divine: "Kendall rolls her eyes and pulls the milk jug from the refrigerator. Its label reads fresh as heck from hector farms."
"Go force your condescending man-logic on the next house."
Wow, that was so disturbing, in a completely awesome way.  I loved every minute of this book.  It was exactly like those movies.  Yet, since it was a book so completely better.  Only read this book if you like to be frightened and chilled by the sheer evil it contains.  I don't think this is the type of evil that can cause nightmares.  With these types of stories the less I say the better.  Hopefully, I haven't said too much already.  If you loved those movies this is definitely the book for you.  It is a delicious dive into a bit of horror.

Spoiler Section:
I love that her OCD saved her from the terrible fate.  Who would have thought anything good can come from such a disorder.  I guess we should all start looking for the good side to all of our misfortunes.  You never know when something you have learned or gone through could save your life.  Lesson learned: Don't fall asleep at your desk in class or it may be more than your grades that suffer!
