A loner in his all-white high school, Chinese-born Xing (pronounced “Shing”) is a wallflower longing for acceptance. His isolation is intensified by his increasingly awkward and undeniable crush on his only friend, the beautiful and brilliant Naomi Lee.

Xing’s quiet adolescent existence is rattled when a series of disappearances rock his high school and fear ripples through the blue collar community in which he lives.

Amidst the chaos surrounding him, only Xing, alone on the sidelines of life, takes notice of some peculiar sightings around town. He begins to investigate hoping if he can help put an end to the disappearances, he will finally win the acceptance for which he has longed. However, as Xing draws closer to unveiling the identity of the abductor, he senses a noose of suspicion tightening around his own neck.

While Xing races to solve the mystery and clear his name, Crossing hurtles readers towards a chilling climax.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The author has Xing’s voice dead on, and the loneliness of the boy’s life (dead father, mother working two jobs, few adults taking an interest in his life) and his bitter demeanor makes it seem probable that he knows more than he’s telling. Xing stays one step ahead of the reader, the truth of his world kept just out of reach.”

  • “Sad, elegant, and creepy, this is a deft debut.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Laura | 2/13/2014

    " What an awesome book. Children go missing from a small town high school and an immigrant student is accused. Narrated by the student in question, the story leaves you guessing as it unfolds. Is this storyteller to be trusted, or is he telling you what he wants you to hear? At times gruesome, touching, sad and chilling,Crossing is as much a look inside the mind of an outcast as it is a reflection of the rest of us in his eyes. Fans of "The Bottoms" and other mysteries featuring misunderstood characters should enjoy this one. "

    " It's not that this book isn't any good. It's really good. But it depressed me so much, I had to read something much more upbeat to make myself feel better. The writing is really good, and the mystery is sufficiently creepy to make me regret having read it at night. But the ending (while realistic and brutally honest) just left me more disturbed than I cared for. "

    " I finished reading this when Jason was in the hospital. It as a sad read. Even sadder is that I believe there are many people this isolated and delusional that exist in our society. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Glen | 1/14/2014

    " Again, another book that could so easily be 3 1/2 stars...I moved it to 4 stars because of the surprise ending - quite a risk for a debut novel. With that said, the 3 1/2 stars would've been appropriate for the character development or lack thereof besides the main character (told as a narrative). The point of the story was very eye opening; racism told from the Asian-American viewpoint. The ending made this easy-read - less than 24 hours - definitely worthwhile. "
