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.
A high-stakes hide-and-seek competition turns deadly in this dark supernatural thriller from New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White.

Oooo this was a creepy, horror-filled good time.
How much would it cost for you to play hide and seek for a week? Already hiding from a childhood filled with sorrow, Mack knows exactly how much it would cost: whatever the mysterious organizers are paying.
Mack joins 13 other competitors in an abandoned amusement park for seven days seeking to be the finalist on the last day – and win enough money to leave her current life behind.
Can you already feel those sinister vibes? Since there are PLENTY from page one. I loved how the changing POVs kept me on my toes and wondering what exactly was behind this odd competition. White uses her excellent cast of characters to move the story along and build onto the foreboding and creepy vibes. Read this one with the lights on and definitely not when you’re planning on going into the woods!
Without going into spoiler territory – the nod to the Minotaur myth was SUCH a good touch.
