“With her adult debut, White takes us deep into a nightmarish abandoned amusement park with a vicious supernatural game of hide and seek.”
Fourteen people take on the challenge of a lifetime: Spend a week playing hide and seek in an abandoned amusement park and don’t get caught. The prize money is life-changing.
All the players are desperate to win, but Mack thinks she can beat them all. To win the prize, she just has to hide, and she’s an expert at that. Hiding is the reason she is alive … and her family isn’t.
Soon the other contestants start disappearing, and Mack believes something sinister is happening beyond healthy competition. Working together with the rest of the gang might be the only way to survive.
Come out, come out, wherever you are.
Why we’re excited about this book:
While no stranger to horror and speculative fiction in the YA categories, Kiersten White is poised to make her adult horror fiction debut. The author of the Camelot Rising Trilogy, the And I Darken series, The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein, and The Chaos of Stars among others, with Star Wars: Padawan forthcoming, White’s books have hit the NY Times Bestseller lists and she’s a recipient of the Bram Stoker Award. With her adult debut, White takes us deep into a nightmarish abandoned amusement park with a vicious supernatural game of hide and seek. Chuck Wendig (Wanderers, The Book of Accidents) calls Hide “Equal parts hell-ride thriller and American fable, Kiersten White’s Hide runs you through a sinister child’s game set in a nightmare amusement park, and it does so with gleeful, fiendish delight. I hung on to this book with bloodless knuckles, and I adored every spine-chilling second.”, and Delilah S. Dawson (The Violence) says Hide is “Haunting, startling, unrelenting, and unexpectedly heartbreaking, Hide draws you inexorably in among the thorns and rust, where the monsters are both intimately familiar and horrifyingly unfathomable.”
Forthcoming from Del Rey 24 May 2022, Hide by Kiersten White is available for pre-order now.
