Hide Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Brought to you by Penguin.
A high-stakes hide-and-seek competition turns deadly in this dark supernatural thriller from New York Times best-selling author Kiersten White, perfect for fans of Stephen King and Squid Game.
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 their dream futures or escape their haunting pasts—Mack feels sure that 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 realises this competition is more sinister than even 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.

“To the youngest generations we’ve tasked with saving us all: You shouldn’t have to. I’m so sorry.”
I loved this book, the social commentary simmering underneath, is a scream that sinks its fangs under your skin. Intensely character-based, with elements of horror and the beauty of being human and finding your way back to choosing and wanting to live. It is found family, the sweetest subtle romance, friendship, and sacrifice.
“Just because she shouldn’t have to be so damn strong doesn’t mean that she isn’t.”
Through tremendously skilled writing, the layers of repercussions and consequences of the choices made by those who came before, only to leave behind a mess for the next generation to fix and clean, is seen and felt and it’s magnificently terrible. This book is one of my favorites of 2022 and will always have a place on my bookshelf. I am hopeful that this could be a movie someday. . .
The characters will live with me for ages and I’ll always be wondering what happens after the last page. Stupendous, intense, can’t recommend it enough. I’ve already thrown it at my family and told them to read it.
Also, Mack and Ava are everything. Throw in the friendships formed between characters, it’s just. . .chef’s kiss.
“But she doesn’t run for Ava. She runs toward Ava, trusting absolutely that Ava will be ready.”
On a much smaller note. While it's not entirely politically opinionated. Only a few instances. Yet they were very intentional points. I'm happy for any and all to have any and all beliefs, positions, opinions, etc. So I'll express mine, which is, I don't like my fiction with personal social political spin when it isn't a specific aspect or context to the plot. Which isn't to say I disagree or agree with author.
Overall, an insipid YA read.
With as much time that’s spent trying to make you sympathize with the “contestants”, I still just didn’t care. It was so slow, and the overall pace had me struggling to turn page. The ending wasn’t worth trudging through the 236 pages.
If you’re a horror fan who actually want your book to be horrifying then skip this one. Unless you’re an insomniac who needs help falling asleep.
