Quiz #3 [Blog Tour] // Can You Survive the Road in Briar Glen Forest?

Rules for Vanishing (1)Hi all! I realize you haven’t heard from me that much recently, but I’m trying to keep this blog as active as I can as I go through my second year of college. Thankfully, the people at Penguin Young Readers were able to offer me this amazing opportunity, and I was gifted a surprise package in the form of a diverse and spooky upcoming YA release.

Below, you won’t find my review (not just yet!), but you’ll find something just as amazing. I very loosely based a short horror quiz off this story. While I didn’t want to spoil much with the options, I thought that I took it in a fairly neutral, but fun, direction. I hope y’all enjoy!
