62:120 Snakes & Ladders by Seanan McGuire

Little Alice Healy has finally figured out what Halloween is all about and has managed to convince her mother, Fran, to take her out trick-or-treating.  As far as she is concerned, this is the best thing made even better by the fact that she is getting to be a cowgirl with guns to protect her from the monsters she knows could be out there.  Neither she nor Fran were actually expecting any trouble but when Fran takes her eyes off Alice for a second when she approaches the door with a pack of kids, she is kidnapped by a snake cult.  Now Fran is desperate to find her daughter and save her, no matter what.

A cute little story of a little girl's perfect trust in her mother and how things are not always as they seem.
