So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story, just click on the book image, or to read more about both book and author go here.
If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.
It is late by the time I leave my mother’s house, the rain coming down in torrential swathes. The others remain behind. They will stay until the food has run out, until the television is blaring with late-night infomercials, my mother falling asleep in her chair. They have never been very good at making a timely exit, not like me.
I steer the car along quiet streets, driving a bow-wave of water before me. I feel like I am all alone in the world. I don’t go home, because what would be the point? Instead I follow the coast, watch as the waves lap against the shoreline, the bright lights of the pier up ahead. Imagine myself in that life, where Saturday night is spent in a bar, a penny arcade, instead of in a car, contemplating your own death.

As this was a publisher review request, a paperback copy of, Hidden, was sent to me by Philippa Cotton, at Century Publishing and will form part of an organised blog tour for the book, in a couple of months time.
This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog articles I may post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by … Jenn at ‘A Daily Rhythm’
