Lisa McMann: Cryer's Cross

Young-adult author Lisa McMann creates a fully fleshed-out protagonist, Kendall, for her latest horror/suspense novel, Cryer’s Cross. A freshman who struggles with OCD, Kendall leads readers into a world of trapped souls and evil spirits. After two fellow students go missing, she starts to hear their voices and see messages from them scratched out on a school desk. Worried that she’s going crazy, Kendall tries to ignore the voices, but eventually succumbs to the students’ pleas for help. Is she losing her mind, or are the missing students trying to reach out to her from the beyond? See what hints McMann gives out during today’s reading and signing session. 6:30 p.m. Murder by the Book, 2342 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-524-8597 or visit www.murderbooks.com. Free.
