So, in the meantime, here are some new ##bookaday selections.
Carol Plum-Ucci has provided readers a more than satisfying sequel to THE BODY OF CHRISTOPHER CREED in FOLLOWING CHRISTOPHER CREED (Harcourt, September 2011). It is now 4 years since Creed disappeared from his home in Steepleton leaving behind the most cryptic of messages. Creed also left behind a domineering mother, several bullies, and a huge mystery. Now, college reporter and ChristopherCreed.com fanatic, Mike Mavic, has come to Steepleton following up on the report of a newly discovered dead body. Is it Christopher Creed?
I do not want to give any more away that might spoil this for readers who are either new to the story of Creed or who enjoyed the Printz Honor winning Body of Christopher Creed. Suffice to say, there is plenty here to enjoy. While it helps to know the beginning of the story of Christopher Creed, it is not entirely necessary to have read the first book as Plum-Ucci provides the back story, too. It is nice to see the YA mystery coming back strong. <264>
