Rules For Vanishing

February 2020 Book of the Month review

If you’re not aware, I am apart of a local book club with some of my good friends. For February our book was, Rules for Vanishing by Kate Alice Marshall. Most of the ladies in my club are hard core true crime fans. So I was happily surprised that a syfy book was chose this month.


Publication Date:09/24/2019

Product Dimensions:5.90(w) x 8.40(h) x1.50(d)


Publisher: Penguin

Age Range: Young Adult


Sara Donoghues sister Becca goes missing and everyone assumes she ran off with her boyfriend. However Sara knows the truth.. or so she thinks. Sara and her friends get lost trying to find Becca and piece together the mystery that is Lucy Gallows.


While the summery on Barnes and Noble mentioned the Blair Witch Project, I would compare Rules for Vanishing with the hit tv show supernatural. The book starts off with a cryptic text message and a ghost hunt. Right away I was hooked to the story and characters. One thing I really loved about the book was the different pieces of “evidence”. They’re range from txt messages, audio recordings and interviews. It’s a interesting way to break up chapters. I thought the different ways the author incorporated the myth of the road to move along the story really flowed. While I am not too fond of the ending, I still recommend the book.
