Waiting on Wednesday (21)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we "can't-wait-to-read".

Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann
Release date: February 11th 2011 
Summary: (taken from Amazon)

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 OCD 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.

Well this sounds pretty awesome! I just loved Lisa McMann's Wake series, so I'm sure this will be wonderful. I love the cover too, I think it goes along great with the plot. Oh and Goodreads has a slightly different summary, so feel free to check that out as well :)

Well you know, I never read her Wake series. I mean, I tried but couldn't really get into it. Ha. Story of my life. Anyways! This isn't a moment of introspection.

Looks pretty good. I love small town books! And a population of 212? Lord have mercy upon that town. XD Talk about knowing everyone and their grandmothers.

Great pick!
