Following Christopher Creed?

You know how Twitter is a constant stream of distraction? Well the other day someone had mentioned a book on Twitter that doesn't come out until like JUNE and I couldn't remember the name of it. So I started going through the listings on Amazon by release date, as you do, hoping I'd see it and it would spark my memory. And I stumbled across this:

Following Christopher Creed by Carol Plum-Ucci Harcourt Children's Books September 5, 2010
When Torey Adams posts on his blog that a body has been found in Steepleton—four years after Christopher Creed disappeared—college reporter Mike Mavic sells his laptop and hops a plane to capture the story that will undoubtedly launch his journalistic career.
What Mike finds in Steepleton is not what he expected. Instead he witnesses a town suffering under a cloud of bad frequency: mysterious accidents, a higher than usual cancer rate, and people who are just a little off normal. Everyone remembers the unsolved mystery of Christopher Creed, but to the teenage residents of Steepleton, Chris is nothing more than past history. Yet to his younger brother Justin, his obsession with finding Chris offers hope.
This as yet unidentified body is the only thing that could possibly bring Chris’s former classmates Torey Adams, Bo Richardson, and Ali McDermott back to Steepleton at the same time—and provide Mike with the story of a lifetime: what really happened to Christopher Creed.

I'm not sure how I feel about this.

You may know that I'm a huge fan of The Body of Christopher Creed, one of my forgotten treasures during BBAW and everything. Truly I love that book. But I'm unsure about the idea of a sequel. In fact, at the moment I actively hate the idea of a sequel, and I'm hoping someone can persuade me otherwise.

Have you read The Body of Christopher Creed? What are your thoughts?

(By the way for the truly curious, I discovered which book I was looking for, it's called Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma and is the kind of book I feel slightly guilty for wanting to read and yet, really want to read!~)
