First, let's talk about that cover! It totally drew me in, and foretells volumes about the world readers are about to enter with Alexis Schaitkin's Elsewhere.

The first-look introduces an isolated community where mothers periodically vanish into thin air. The community swiftly acts to remove all traces of the woman from her home while speculating whether there were any warning signs as to why she was chosen. The protagonist, lives with her father in the wake of her mother's absence and has a BFF who also lost her mother. Perfect set-up for a twisty tale.
