The Body of Christopher Creed

The Body of Christopher Creed by Carol Plum-Ucci is a Printz Honor book of 2001 (the most prestigious book award for young adult fiction).

Christopher Creed is missing. He left an email note, sent from the school library to the principal, that could be read as both a suicide note or an intent to run away. In the email he mentioned some of his classmates - not as the people driving him away, but as the people he would rather be like than himself. One of those classmates is Torey (Victor) Adams.

Now that he has read the note, Torey feels responsible for finding out what happen to Chris Creed. He and two friends start to investigate. But that they find out will lead to more misery and despair in the town of Steepleton.

A fast-paced, thought-provoking mystery/thriller that explores name-calling and prejudice, The Body of Christopher Creed is another amazing book by Plum-Ucci. It seems she could not write a bad book if she tried!
