Booklist - 09/15/2021 After a game of hide-and-seek gone awry lands Holly and Hector Thorn in the Hiddenseek, a cursed realm that appears to be time-trapped, they must struggle to stay out of the path of IT, a nefarious witch, before they are turned into statues for eternity. Along the way, they encounter fellow hide-and-seekers who have been left behind in the haunted land, with whom they band together to break IT’s curse and return home. Cernosek’s eerie, fast-paced narrative and fresh concept is perfect for fans of R. L. Stine and younger readers ready for the likes of Stephen King, with chilling dialogue, effective jump scares, and an intriguing mystery to unravel. As this brother-sister pair races against time to avoid IT and save the rest of their fellow playmates, every step of the way is filled with shadows and monsters and a possible plummet into the jaws of IT, an otherwise nameless force of evil that only grows more terrifying as the pages turn. - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
