Okay, I kinda love Lisa McMann's WAKE trilogy (only just hitting the UK shores, but it's completely out in the USA). So am very surprised and shocked over the reveal of her new novel. Surprised because it sounds so good! My type of read. And shocked because I totally missed it!
Lisa's new novel is called Cryer's Cross and this is what Lisa has revealed to us.
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, Kendall¹s 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.
This book will be released in the US on 8th February 2011. Oh, my reading for next year's already started. That's not a good sign...
