Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Kendall Fletcher had big problems even before her two high school classmates went missing. Her intrusive OCD put her at loose ends, constantly searching for lost threads. The Cryer's Cross freshman was shaken by the disappearance of the first student, but she was totally thunderstruck when her close friend vanished. With her mind already in overdrive, she attempts to put together the pieces of crimes that stump even the police. A spooky small town thriller with a fascinating (and infinitely sympathetic) main character.

Publishers Weekly
In this ghost story, McCann (the Wake trilogy) delivers an atmospheric but unsatisfying tale of smalltown horror. Kendall Fletcher, a soccer player with obsessive-compulsive disorder who dreams of performing on Broadway, is determined to escape her tiny hometown of Cryer's Cross, Mont., by getting into Juilliard. When her best friend, Nico, is the second student to vanish mysteriously in recent months, it throws Kendall's ordered life into disarray. Soon, enigmatic daydreams and clues lead her to believe that Nico is the latest victim of a supernatural mystery, and she may be the next target. A handsome but surly newcomer, Jacián, may be the key to surviving whatever is preying on the teens of Cryer's Cross. While the remote, rural setting is laden with potential (the one-room high school has only 24 students) and the constant whirring of Kendall's OCD-afflicted mind adds an interesting dimension, the elements never completely gel. McMann handles the buildup of the story's tension well, but her resolution feels quick and easy, and even bloody final revelations can't mitigate a premise that's far more silly than spooky. Ages 14–up. (Feb.)
Children's Literature - Cara Chancellor
The population of Cryer's Cross, Montana, is small by any standard, but ninth-grader Tiffany Quinn's disappearance has made it feel even smaller. It seems impossible in a town of two hundred that a stranger kidnapped her, yet why and where would she run? Kendall Fletcher's obsessive-compulsive brain churns with the question all summer, making her long for the distractions of school, soccer practice, and conversations with her best friend—arguably her boyfriend—Nico. Even with the addition of two new students, Kendall's daily routine of ordering markers and straightening desks is a soothing return to normalcy. By the end of the first week, though, Kendall knows something is wrong. Nico has become distant, preoccupied. When he fails to show for a weekend trip, the worst is soon confirmed: Nico also has gone missing. For Kendall, the next days are a personal hell of TV reporters and staring at an empty desk where her friend should be. A desk that suddenly has a new message carved in it. "Please. Save me." The same desk, her OCD reminds her, that last year belonged to Tiffany. Kendall's mind is a formidable tool, but will it help her save Nico? Or lead her to the same fate? McMann's page-turning thriller is made exceptional by her skillful portrayal of Kendall's OCD, inspired by her own daughter's experience with the disorder. The reader quickly learns to treat the affliction as Kendall does, as something that is part of her, but makes her no less a "normal" teenager. There may be a blip of incredulity from older audiences when it becomes apparent that a piece of furniture is the villain, but the strength of the grisly back story—based upon the real-life tale of Florida's abused "White House Boys"—gives the plot staying power.

Kirkus Reviews

High-school junior Kendall Fletcher begins to have real trouble with her obsessive-compulsive disorder after a freshman girl disappears without a trace from her tiny, rural town. When her boyfriend Nico goes missing next, Kendall's OCD symptoms worsen, and she starts to fall apart completely. She begins to hear Nico's voice calling for help and discovers messages scrawled in what used to be his desk. Readers know from the beginning that Kendall isn't crazy, because several chapters, including the very first one, are preceded by italicized passages titled "WE" that reveal the presence of a supernatural entity in Cryer's Cross. But what exactly is it? What town secrets does it conceal? And will Kendall succumb to it, as Nico did? Fans of supernatural thrillers will enjoy this one despite the fact that the resolution is too sudden and the "WE" passages are much more bewildering than scary. The present-tense narration gives the story a sense of immediacy, and the budding romance between Kendall and sexy newcomer Jacián boosts its teen appeal. (Supernatural thriller. 14-18)
