Little Creeping Things

By: Chelsea Ichaso

When she was a child, Cassidy Pratt accidentally started a fire that killed her neighbor. At least, that's what she's been told. She can't remember anything from that day. She's pretty sure she didn't mean to do it. She's a victim too. But her town's bullies, particularly the cruel and beautiful Melody Davenport, have never let Fire Girl live it down. In Melody's eyes, Cassidy is a murderer and always will be.

And then Melody goes missing. Cassidy overheard what sounded like an abduction. She knows she should go to the cops, but… She recently joked about how much she'd like to get rid of Melody. She even planned out the perfect way to do it. It's up to Cassidy to figure out what really happened, because if she comes forward without a suspect, she knows people will point fingers at her. Again. And she can't let that happen.

But the truth behind Melody's disappearance will set the whole town in flames.

In the small town of Maribel, OR, where all should be quaint and serene, a dark and murderous secret remains unsolved. Cassidy Pratt is a high school student and varsity volleyball player from a decent family. She attempts to lead a typical teenage life, although her tortured psyche refuses to let her embrace that existence. The recurring memory of her childhood friend’s death is often triggered when peers taunt her with the ill-humored, accusatory nickname, “Fire Girl.” Fast forward to present day, where the town’s most popular girl and one of Cassidy’s tormentors, Melody, has gone missing after having a lover’s quarrel with a mysterious person. That person knows a secret about Cassidy and is turning her into a suspect. With the help of her older brother and a longtime friend/love interest, Cassidy must revisit the tainted past in order to solve the crime at hand. There are some depictions of teenage drinking and violence, but they are not explicit. Although a bit on the long side, this James Patterson–like crime drama will keep readers up at night; a psychological thriller worthy of mystery aficionados.
