3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 STARS! 19 Nov 2014
By M
Format:Kindle Edition
Though I feel the plots of the novels in this series are rather similar, they are certainly still addictive! I love these covers, the colours used are vibrant and eye-catching whilst the mystery of the last book by completing the face is solved but by the end of the novel you have the start of the face for the new suspect.

Now Thayer's name has been cleared, Sutton needs to find out the truth about Laurel as she begins to hint at the fact that she was not at Nisha's party the night of Sutton's death. Alongside this, her growing agitation with Thayer's affection towards Emma begins to grate on Laurel; Emma needs to be careful of Laurel until she can find out if she murdered Sutton or not before it is too late.

My opinions of both Emma and Sutton are much the same as before:
Loving, kind, friendly, happy-as-she-can-be, determined, gets-into-trouble-on-purpose-if-thats-what-it-takes, sensible, and does not like the lying game. She now easily copes with accusations of things she doesn't know about of which Sutton did as she is very clever in twisting it around to use it to her advantage and acts as clues for Suttons death, making everything that much harder for her. She is also a very likeable character who is mature and practical.
Unkind, hates-everyone, goes-along-with-it, ALWAYS-in-trouble, rebellious, selfish, immature, moody, and loves the lying game! She also seems to revel in everyones unhappiness and does not think about others before herself. Now that we have seen her view from the outside...

2.0 out of 5 stars Lost in translation 29 Dec 2013
By Ameya
I read "Hide and Seek" without having read any of the previous novels in the series. The protagonist is Emma, the identical twin sister of Sutton, who has supposedly died and whom Emma is impersonating after living a quite sad life in foster homes.

I was a bit lost about Sutton's character (the secondary protagonist) other than hints that she had been a bullying and largely negative figure, and how exactly Emma came to be living Sutton's life. I think this should have been cleared up in the novel to make for effective world-building. For this reason, I was neither completely engaged in the story nor in the characters. What made for an intriguing premise was lost in translation and the questions were never answered about the novel' purpose or Emma's and Sutton's roles in it. Was the story about souls on the way to heaven/ the afterlife, or reincarnation or a delusional person who hadn't died after all?

For an entry into the series, "Hide and Seek" does not do an adequate job of painting the characters, e.g. also the sister Laurel, Emma's boyfriend Ethan or Sutton's boyfriend Thayer. In fact Ethan and Thayer could have been clones of each other's personas but with different coloured eyes. It didn't make sense why Emma dumped Thayer and grabbed Ethan as a boyfriend if she was supposed to impersonating Sutton, unless Sutton is very much alive and due to return to the series as Thayer's girlfriend once again. Or unless Ethan turns out to be murderous and Emma "returns" to Thayer.

The editing also could have been done better as there were a lot of clunky sentences.
A very confusing read.
