Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 May 2022
When she enters a hide-and-seek competition based in an abandoned theme park, Mack is pretty confident in her chances of winning. All she has to do is hide, and she’s an expert at that. But as the other competitors begin disappearing one by one, the competition takes a sinister turn and Mack starts to realise that the stakes might be higher than any of them could have imagined.

I absolutely loved this book. Firstly, the premise of a high-stakes hide-and-seek competition really appealed to me, and was surprisingly plausible in the current age of reality TV. Secondly, Hide is really, really well written. The pacing is good and Mack is a very likable central character.

The one area where it lacked a little was in the split narration following all fourteen competitors. Fourteen is a lot of characters to try to keep track of, so this was a little confusing at times. Luckily, they start dropping like flies pretty early on, so the number of characters to follow cuts down quickly!

There’s also a supernatural twist which was right up my street.
