Title: The Vanishing Season
   Author: Jodi Lynn Anderson
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: July 1st, 2014

     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.

My Stance:

     I have been a fan of Jodi Lynn Anderson since I read Tiger Lily. I have been trying to keep an eye on her novels, and I want to read more. She has a great way with working characters, and getting her readers to get completely into the characters and feeling all their emotion. In this case I think this book won't be any exception either. The Vanishing Season, I forsee as being a book that's going to haunt me one night when I finally pick it up.

     I believe this is a book told from a ghosts perspective, however I don't know if this is the case of Every Day by David Levithan in which the gender of the main character is more ambiguous. I don't know whether that would effect how the story would read (in terms of town or relationships), or if it would be needed at all. Either way, I am confused why the ghost or person is ties to the two girls, but than again that is why I would read the book. It's such a great sounding book, that I really just hope she nails the story. Did I mention the cover and how eerie it looks?
