Why did I love this book?
It’s been a year since Sara’s sister played “the game” and went missing, vanished down the forest road—a mysterious path that appears only once a year like a mirage in the desert. Sara is consumed with the mystery of her sister, convinced that she will never know what really happened. Until an anonymous text message pings onto her phone, inviting her and her estranged friends to play “the game” for themselves and seek out local ghost legend, Lucy Gallows. Sara is convinced that following the road is the only way to get Becca back, but she can’t predict how changed they’ll all be on the other side. Half a cup of Blair Witch with a dash of ghost-bitten Wizard of Oz, this book was an adventure like no other. Rules for Vanishing was claustrophobic in the best way. It felt like entering a warped Oz, where nothing was what it seemed, and the stakes were high as can be. I couldn't trust anyone, and I loved that.
