Publisher Description

"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.

Educator view

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.
