Content descriptions

General Note:
"In the faux-documentary style of The Blair Witch Project comes the campfire story of a missing girl, a vengeful ghost, and the girl who is determined to find her sister--at all costs."--Amazon.
Summary, etc.:
"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. Sara knows that if she steps onto the road, she might not come back. But Becca needs her. And Lucy is waiting."--Page [2] of cover.

    According to local lore, Sara's sister, Becca, wasn't the first girl in their Massachusetts town to go missing. In 1953, Lucy Callow—renamed Lucy Gallows in urban legends—disappeared in the forest. On the anniversary of her disappearance, legend says, the road she walked reappears, and if you find it, you can find her. Now the anniversary of Lucy's disappearance is the anniversary of Becca's, too; she was obsessed with finding Lucy's road, and she's been gone a year. When the road appears for Sara, bearing mysterious, riddle-like instructions, she'll have to rely on the friends she's alienated in order to find Becca. But what waits for them in this eerie world is hungry and dark, and, in saving Becca, Sara might doom herself. Arranged in a found-footage collection of interviews, handwritten recollections, and transcriptions of cellphone videos, this homage to Blair Witch–era horror can be genuinely terrifying. Marshall (I Am Still Alive, 2018) keeps the twisty narrative intentionally murky, ensuring that readers, like Sara and her friends, may never find their way out. Grades 9-12.
