The Inn Between by Marina Cohen, Illustrated by Sarah Watts, Roaring Brook Press, New York, 2016.
This is a very interesting read, although the author tends to the naturalistic bent a bit too much for my taste. There are a few times she seems to be trying to gross us out with her descriptions. Quinn is going on a trip with her best friend, but this is bitter sweet because her friend is moving with her family to California. This is thousands of miles from Colorado. So this is a farewell trip. Quinn is only allowed to go, because she has been in therapy following the kidnapping and murder of her sister. There are five in the car, traveling across the Mojave desert. It is after a bright light that they come to the Inn. This inn is different, and soon her friend's parents and brother disappear. Not only that, but QUinn is sure she saw her sister in one of the rooms.
