My pick this week:
The Vanishing Season by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Published by HarperTeen on July 1st 2014
Genres: Supernatural, Thriller, YA
Girls started vanishing in the fall, and now winter's come to lay a white sheet over the horror. Door County, it seems, is swallowing the young, right into its very dirt. From beneath the house on Water Street, I've watched the danger swell.
The residents know me as the noises in the house at night, the creaking on the stairs. I'm the reflection behind them in the glass, the feeling of fear in the cellar. I'm tied—it seems—to this house, this street, this town.
I'm tied to Maggie and Pauline, though I don't know why. I think it's because death is coming for one of them, or both.
All I know is that the present and the past are piling up, and I am here to dig.I am looking for the things that are buried.
From bestselling author Jodi Lynn Anderson comes a friendship story bound in snow and starlight, a haunting mystery of love, betrayal, redemption, and the moments that we leave behind.
This sounds so up my alley it’s not even funny! It sounds like it’s being told from the ghost’s point of view (unless there’s a twist :D). Plus it’s Jodi Lynn Anderson! I haven’t read anything by her yet but she’s highly praised.
What are you waiting on?

Wow the title alone gives me the chills, and then that first sentence is actually beautiful.

I’ve heard fantastic things about Jodi Lynn Anderson, even though I haven’t read anything by her as well.
Fantastic pick this week, Giselle!
This really does sound great – love the summary. And the cover is so beautiful. 🙂
Creepy! But that cover is gorgeous. I’m very curious if the Door County she’s talking about is the one here!? Interesting! Hmmm… Great pick! Happy reading.
