Teaser Tuesdays

To participate on Teaser Tuesdays is simple, take your current read, choose two sentences from any page and post. Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of ShouldBeReading.

Our choice this week is from Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann.

"By mid-October, Kendall is stuck in a loop of depressing thoughts that won't leave her. Lost without a goal, lost without her best friend, lost in a thousand acres of potatoes." (From page 119, ARC)

Book summary: 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.

Cryer's Cross (240 pages) will be published by Simon Pulse on February 8, 2011.
