The Body of Christopher Creed Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chris Creed grew up as the class freak--the bullies' punching bag. After he vanished, the weirdness that had once surrounded him began spreading. It was as if a darkness reached out of his void to grab at the most normal, happy people--like some twisted joke or demented form of justice. It tore the town apart. Sixteen-year-old Torey Adams's search for answers opens his eyes to the lies, the pain, and the need to blame when tragedy strikes, and his once-safe world comes crashing down around him.

Synopsis:

A brand-new paperback edition of Carol Plum-Ucci's groundbreaking Printz Honor–winning debut novel
