The Body of Christopher Creed

The Body of Christopher Creed

By:  Carol Plum-Ucci

Also available in:

Chris Creed grew up as the class freak—the bullies’ punching bag. After he vanished, the weirdness that had once surrounded him began spreading. And 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 someone when tragedy strikes, and his once-safe world comes crashing down around him.

Includes an interview with the author and a reader’s guide.
