This certainly wasn’t what I expected when I began reading this book. I like to try my best to forget the blurb while I read after I’ve signed up so I can go into a book “blind” to the synopsis, but it doesn’t always work. Well, in this case the author did a fantastic job of being honest in the description without really giving anything away. There are many secrets and lies in this story, and not everything you think will be accurate. I’m usually on point with my guesses, but with Hidden Truths I was constantly thrown for a loop. It really lives up to the mystery genre to which it belongs, and though it’s labeled young adult, I’d definitely recommend it for an older audience, probably 16 and over. It’s an intense journey and some elements might be too… desperate? Bleak? Scary? for a younger crowd. Definitely a good deal darker than I would have thought given the mild autumn cover, and a fast paced read that will be perfect for your upcoming weekend!
About the Author
I adore chocolate chip cookies, romance novels, and alone time. I live in south Louisiana with a collection of rescued dogs and cats. All of who are the loves of my life and well aware of the fact. Spoiled would be a good word to describe them. Writing is currently a hobby since it doesn’t pay the bills but my fond hope is one day I can consider it a full time job. I’ll keep you posted on how that goes. Currently I spend my days wrangling tech guys in my job as an IT manager. I squeeze writing in between reading plus a million other things like cleaning. Guess what usually wins? Btw, I need to clean my house.
