The Body of Christopher Creed

The Body of Christopher Creed Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Years later . . . what really happened to Christopher Creed? When Torey Adams posts on his blog that a body has been found in Steepleton—four years after Christopher Creed disappeared—college reporter Mike Mavic sells his laptop and hops a plane to capture the story that will undoubtedly launch his journalistic career. But what Mike finds is a town suffering under a cloud of bad frequency and people with an underlying streak of meanness. To the teens of Steepleton, Chris is nothing more than history—but to Justin Creed, a teen obsessed with his older brothers memory and balancing on the edge of sanity, discovering what really happened to Chris Creed is a matter of life and death.

Synopsis:

A brand-new paperback edition of Carol Plum-Ucci's groundbreaking Printz Honorand#150;winning debut novel

Synopsis:

In this debut teen thriller, Tricia Farni was last seen alive the night she fought with Roswell Hart--a night Roz cant remember. Can Roz piece together the events of that night, despite the eye disease that robs her of most of her vision, in order to clear her name and find a murderer?

Synopsis:

Theres none so blind as they that wont see.

Seventeen-year-old Tricia Farnis body floated to the surface of Alaskas Birch River six months after the night she disappeared. The night Roz Hart had a fight with her. The night Roz cant remember. Roz, who struggles with macular degeneration, is used to assembling fragments to make sense of the world around her. But this time its her memory that needs piecing together—to clear her name . . . to find a murderer. This unflinchingly emotional novel is written in the powerful first-person voice of a legally blind teen who just wants to be like everyone else.

Synopsis:

Chris Creed grew up as the class freakand#151;the bulliesand#8217; punching bag. After he vanished, the weirdness that had once surrounded him began spreading. And it tore the town apart. Sixteen-year-old Torey Adamsand#8217;s search for answers opens his eyes to the lies, the pain, and the need to blame someone when tragedy strikes, and his once-safe world comes crashing down around him.
