What Happened to Cass McBride?
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
"The setting is claustrophobic, the characters are complex and the story will keep readers on the edge of their seats," KLIATT raved of this vivid, fast-paced psychological thriller in a starred review. Kyle Kirby has planned a cruel and unusual revenge on Cass McBride, the most popular girl in school, for the death of his brother David. He digs a hole. Kidnaps Cass. Puts her in a box--underground. He buries her alive. But lying in the deepest dark, Cass finds a weapon: she uses the power of words to keep her nemesis talking--and herself breathing--during the most harrowing 48 hours of her life.

Really gud book it mives fast and keeps you on ur toes the entire time
This book makes you wanting to keep reading its is amazing and full of suspense one of the best books I've read.
I am a pre-service teacher and am going into an 11th grade YA Literature class, and the students I am working with chose to read this book. I read this book in one sitting and it took about three hours. It was quite easy, I would reccomend it for an 8-9th grade level personally.
The novel seemed to focus a lot on family, and the relationship that youth have with parents, youth becoming their parents, and youth trying NOT to become their parents.
I found 4 typos in this iBooks addition, but nothing so large that I could not figure out what the word was supposed to be.
“What Happened to Cass McBride” was a coming-of-age novel that highlighted the common teen issue of “saying too much,” and the consequences that words have on one another.
I believe this book serves well as a “choice read” in an English class, but not as an entire class novel. I would support this book at the early high-school level.
