The challenge: spend a week in an amusement park playing hide and seek. The winner gets $50k, an absolute dream for Mack, who has been through so much in her young life. But this isn’t just any hide and seek competition, and not everyone will make it to the end.
Wow, okay, where do I start? This is a tense read, and I dig Mack’s character. She’s strong and persistent, and I can sympathize with her struggle. Overall, there is a big cast, but I don’t feel like it’s distracting or hard to keep track of. Mainly because most of them are just shallow side characters that you don’t need to get invested in. Hide is a big mashup of genres, and I can see why it doesn’t appeal to everyone because it doesn’t fit one niche. If anything, I would have liked to have seen more of the theme park. But overall, I enjoyed it.
About the Book
The challenge: Spend a week hiding in an abandoned amusement park and don’t get caught.
The prize: enough money to change everything.
Even though everyone is desperate to win—to seize a dream future or escape a haunting past—Mack is sure she can beat her competitors. All she has to do is hide, and she’s an expert at that.
It’s the reason she’s alive and her family isn’t.
But as the people around her begin disappearing one by one, Mack realizes that this competition is even more sinister than she imagined, and that together might be the only way to survive.
Fourteen competitors. Seven days. Everywhere to hide but nowhere to run.
Come out, come out, wherever you are.
