Rules for Vanishing by Kate Alice Marshall (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Once a year, a road appears in the forest. And at the end of it, the ghost of Lucy Gallows beckons. Lucy's game isn't for the faint of heart. If you win, you escape with your life. But if you lose....Sara's sister disappeared one year ago--and only Sara knows where she is. Becca went to find the ghost of Lucy Gallows and is trapped on the road that leads to her. In the sleepy town of Briar Glen, Lucy's road is nothing more than local lore. But Sara knows it's real, and she's going to find it.When Sara and her skeptical friends meet in the forest to search for Becca, the mysterious road unfurls before them. All they have to do is walk down it. But the path to Lucy is not of this world, and it has its own rules. Every mistake summons new horrors. Vengeful spirits and broken, angry creatures are waiting for them to slip, and no one is guaranteed safe passage. The only certainty is this: the road has a toll and it will be paid.

Rules for Vanishing was a peculiar book if I wanted to sum it up into one word. It's different than all the other novels that just have chapter after chapter until it ends. This book has little passages in between the chapters that sometimes help solve a mystery, sometimes it just creates a new one. This mysterious realistic fiction book is a great read and I recommend it everyone who likes spooky mysteries!!

These groups are still committed to bringing you as much engagement as they can from a safe distance, and after the jump you will find all of the ways to stay connected in Winnipeg during these difficult times...
