Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent I recently read the novel “The Body of Christopher Creed”. It was well written by author Carol Plum-Ucci. There were many suspenseful moments that really got the heart pumping. Through the exciting moments I could hardly put the book down. Although there were a few slow pages in the novel but I still couldn’t put it down. The book had a lot of different kind’s characters. There were girls who came from troubled home lives and guys who looked like they came from great homes but were actually really messed up. Christopher had an over protective mother who possibly drove her own son to suicide, or was he murdered? These and more questions can be answered if you sit down and give this great mystery, life changing novel a chance. I also recommend the novels Speak, Go Ask Alice and A Million Little Pieces all of which are very good and exciting. Check them out!
