It's Monday! What are you reading? (#5)

It's Monday! is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey

June has started off fairly productive. Not only have I finished both of the books I listed in my previous It's Monday post, I've also started and finished Dual Image by Nora Roberts. So that's three books in one week, which is still fairly slow by my normal reading standards but given how crazy work has been, I really can't complain. 

The Vanishing Game by Kate Kae Myers

Seventeen-year-old Jocelyn follows clues apparently from her dead twin, Jack, in and around Seale House, the terrifying foster home where they once lived. With help from childhood friend Noah she begins to uncover the truth about Jack's death and the company that employed him and Noah. 
Jocelyn's twin brother Jack was the only family she had growing up in a world of foster homes - and now he's dead, and she has nothing. Then she gets a cryptic letter from "Jason December" - the code name her brother used to use when they were children at Seale House, a terrifying foster home that they believed had dark powers. Only one other person knows about Jason December: Noah, Jocelyn's childhood crush and their only real friend among the troubled children at Seale House. 
But when Jocelyn returns to Seale House and the city where she last saw Noah, she gets more than she bargained for. Turns out the house's powers weren't just a figment of a childish imagination. And someone is following Jocelyn. Is Jack still alive? And if he is, what kind of trouble is he in? The answer is revealed in a shocking twist that turns this story on its head and will send readers straight back to page 1 to read the book in a whole new light.
The story summary and the cover just makes me think of Halloween and scary supernatural forces at play. I don't know what tempted me to pick this up but it sounds like an intriguing read. I think this will be one I'll be reading during daytime!
