Summary (Goodreads):The community of Cryer’s Cross, Montana (population 212) is distraught when high school freshman Tiffany disappears without a trace. Already off-balance due to her OCD, 16-year-old Kendall is freaked out seeing Tiffany’s empty desk in the one-room school house, but somehow life goes on... until Kendall's boyfriend Nico also disappears, and also without a trace. Now the town is in a panic. Alone in her depression and with her Obsessive Compulsive Disorder at an all-time high, Kendall notices something that connects Nico and Tiffany: they both sat at the same desk. She knows it's crazy, but Kendall finds herself drawn to the desk, dreaming of Nico and wondering if maybe she, too, will disappear...and whether that would be so bad. Then she begins receiving graffiti messages on the desk from someone who can only be Nico. Can he possibly be alive somewhere? Where is he? And how can Kendall help him? The only person who believes her is Jacian, the new guy she finds irritating...and attractive. As Kendall and Jacian grow closer, Kendall digs deeper into Nico's mysterious disappearance only to stumble upon some ugly—and deadly—local history. Kendall is about to find out just how far the townspeople will go to keep their secrets buried.




Review:

Creepy, creepy, creepy.  I think it was even creepier because I have a younger sister name Tiffany. This book kept me on the edge of my seat, it was spooky and fast paced. This story was a mystery, and I’m not a hugh fan of mysteries, but this one kept my interest. I read Lisa Mc.Mann’s Wake Trilogy and I loved them, I didn’t know how this book would hold up to them but it was just as good if not better!

Kendall, the main character of the book suffers from OCD, when Tiffany, a freshman at her school  goes missing, the whole town looks for her. After a while with no clue as to where she went, there life soon goes on with it’s normal pace until a new family moves in and Kendall’s best friend goes missing. Kendall finds comfort in Jacian, the new guy at her school.
