Five of the best vanishings in literature

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top vanishings in literature:
Visitation Street
by Ivy Pochoda

Two teenage girls set out on a raft into New York's harbor, but when only one returns, suspicion and fear quickly descend on their close-knit waterfront community of Red Hook. Reviewer Anna Mundow calls Ivy Pochoda's Visitation Street a "seductive" work of suspense that brings its Brooklyn neighborhood to life before our eyes, and artfully captures the timeless mysteries that lie beneath dark waters.
