Best-selling author Carol Plum-Ucci received the Michael L. Printz Honor for The Body of Christopher Creed. In this intense follow-up, we return to Steepleton, where the disappearance of Christopher Creed exposed the town’s darkest secrets and moral failings. Still devastated by the loss of his brother, Justin Creed continues to search for an explanation, even as his fragile mental state continues to disintegrate.
Since first grade, Christopher Creed has been everyone's favorite freak and weirdo whipping boy. But when he disappears without a trace, leaving behind only a strange e-mail message that might be a suicide note, his quiet town becomes consumed with speculation and finger-pointing. And the longer he remains missing, the more clear it becomes that for most people, finding out what happened to Christopher is much less important than finding someone besides themselves to blame.
