“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is HIDE by Kiersten White. I’ve enjoyed several of White’s YA novels so I’m excited to see that she’s also writing adult novels now. This one actually sounds like a much darker story than what I’ve been reading lately, but I’m too intrigued by the premise not to check it out.
HIDE by Kiersten White
Publication Date: May 24, 2022 by Del Ray
A high-stakes hide-and-seek competition turns deadly in this dark thriller from New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White.
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 realizes 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.
