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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 2/17/2014

    " Well written with lots of twists and turns. The best part is that the mystery is left fairly unsolved for the reader to come it his/her own conclusions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katy Major | 2/16/2014

    " I really enjoyed the suspense. The ending was such a cliffhanger!!!! I loved every second of reading this book though...I must say, I was sorry to see it end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 7706lily | 2/8/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. It had really interesting characters and a great plot line. I think the details are great and the characters are very interesting and have distinct personalities. This book is for mystery and drama lovers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 2/7/2014

    " This book was interesting but one I probably wouldn't read again. The premise seemed good but I don't know, it just didn't do it for me. I would have liked to have learned more about Christopher and less about the main character who kind of seemed like a wishy-washy annoying guy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonathon Arntson | 2/1/2014

    " The Body of Chris Creed is one of those mystery novels, although mystery is not quite the right word, where you know what is going on, but somehow Plum-Ucci manages to keep surprising you. Figuring out what is going on is often set-aside, allowing you to get to know the characters and places of the ordinary, small New Jersey town that the book takes place in. I like the way Plum-Ucci abruptly changes course in the plot, but you never become nauseated or frustrated with her writing. The end is a little gross, but that is overshadowed by the shear creative edge of her thinking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corine | 1/23/2014

    " This book was about a boy named Torey adams whose life changes upside down when the school loser, Christopher Creed, disappeares and no one knows where he went. The whole book is a flashback of Torey's life when Chris disappeared. I really liked this book, because I love mysteries, there was so many twist and turns. I would recommend this book to people to love a good cliff hanger book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Qing | 1/23/2014

    " Interesting point of view on how high school mentality is like, as well as how some people may view reality. I quite like how Plum-Ucci portrayed social dynamics through the main character, Torey.^^^^While it's not a thriller or particularly suspenseful book, it really does keep you guessing and wondering what the conclusion is... if any. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tweller83 | 1/17/2014

    " This was a wonderful book. The aftermath of a disappearance sends ripples and we never know where they will go. It makes you think about your own actions and reactions to people and judgements. I would recommend this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 1/14/2014

    " My daughter had this for sophomore honors English summer reading and I had never heard of it, so I read it. She loved it, I thought it was well written, but a little on the preachy side. A good anti-bullying novel. I can see why the high school made it mandetory reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia | 1/12/2014

    " Wondering why this isn't recommend for teens more often. Would make a great movie, too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 10/16/2013

    " I absolutly loved this book. I read it in about 3 days and coulnt stop my parents were amazed that I could be so attached to a book. one day I was reading home alone and my mom got home and the door salmmed i jumped out of my seat because Torey was in the burial grounds at night. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jon | 10/15/2013

    " Great book for opening up discussions with teenagers about bullying, stereotyping, and rumor-mongering. A fun mystery to boot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 elissa | 8/28/2013

    " Not bad, but it didn't motivate me to read more Plum-Ucci books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 6/11/2012

    " Actual rating, 3.6. This book was a good mystery, it kept my attention and I was never bored! I would recommend it to others! Yay "

    " loved it it was my first teenager book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lenae | 9/24/2011

    " It's a mystery and crazy and once you get to the end you're kind of like WHOA, but i read it in 8th grade so i dont really remember, but i liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jody | 8/24/2011

    " I start so many books and quit part way through. I've decided to not report on all those. I found this book in the young adult section, which I really like(the young adult sections of libraries)and it was a good read. It has some interesting social considerations as well as a compelling plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aislinn | 5/20/2010

    " This book is simply amazing. We had to read it for language arts (well at least my group did) and we all agree there's nothing bad about it. There's a lot of mystery, at times it's funny and you can feel sympathy. The best part, is the ending where you just smile and figure the whole thing out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 KJP | 1/21/2010

    " Interesting young adult novel. Christoher Creed (odd kid) disapears. Torey (main character) and his friends try to solve the mystery of what happened to Creed. "
