I was nothing I was a stupid kid, with no mom With no dadAnother Canadian author who, I am pleased to say, wrote an incredible read I wanted something different and got it From the moment I began reading I was so engrossed in this disturbing novel that I felt I was there with Maisy and even Rowan There are two narrative perspectives and the chapters alternate between the two, Maisy and Rowan The author did an amazing job putting a voice to a seven year old girl and a thirteen year old boy I was really impressed I don t know how she does it, but each book Nicole Lundrigan writes is better than the last The characters are complex, the plot is engrossing, the pacing and tension are masterful, and the final act is absolutely stunning.This book has some disturbing content but really holds your interest The story is so moving and intense that I wanted to do nothingthan read it to the end, but there came a part of it that was so suspenseful that I had to stop and gather some fortitude to continue I found this book to be totally captivating Each time I had to put it down, I could not wait to get back to it The underlying situation is revealed from the view point of the children experiencing it It is a horrifying story and yet gentle in its child like approach Ms Lundrigan s characters are easily recognizable as people in your everyday life They look like and live like us and this is what makes Hideaway so effective The dialogue is smooth, the prose is subtle and the tension continues to build for over 320 delectable pages Thank you NetGalley, Nicole Lundrigan, Viking and Penguin Random House Canada for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review all opinions are my own. Hideaway NetGalley This was a heart wrenching and difficult book to read, not because of the writing but the subject matter parental neglect and abuse Thirteen year old Rowan and seven year old Maisy live with their mother Gloria whose husband Telly has recent left them for another woman On the surface Gloria seems to be a loving mother but she appears to only have affection for one child at a time and in Maisy s words can make either one of them disappear when the other is in her favor When Rowan is forced to stand in the woods overnight for a minor incident, he meets Carl, a homeless man with mental illness later forced to stand outside in a storm, Rowan will seek him out for solace And now we see a dysfunctional family at its worst Gloria manipulates things in an attempt to win Telly back and Maisy is told an alternate truth about events As a parent and grandparent, this was painful to read, and my heart broke a little with every selfish move Gloria made to rewrite the story of their lives I just kept taking deep breaths and reminded myself it was fiction though I know it exists too often in real life So if you want an emotional book that will tug at your heartstrings, this is the book for you Thanks to NetGalley for this ARC
