The Hideout

By: Peg Kehret

The main character in the book is Jeremy Holland. He's a 13 year old boy with a best friend named Paul. He has a nice house in Seattle and lives with his parents.

Jeremy Holland's parents die in a tragic accident in a mall getting shot by a gunman being the first in his site. So he has to stay in Chicago with his closest relative uncle Ed. He took a train there to see good sites on the way. Going there his train collides with another and Jeremy staggers off. With the blaze of fire and people screaming Jeremy wanders aimlessly into a forest and finds a cabin to stay in. In the middle of the night he hears a gunshot and tries to unmask the poacher who shot the bear he found in the forest. The book takes place in the middle of Seattle and Chicago in the woods and it happened throughout a month in August. I think the theme of the book is about loss, nature, bravery and fear. I loved the book because it's interesting and it has to be a pretty good book if I keep reading it. It's also thrilling and I rate the book a 5 out of 5.

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"How about some pizza," was the last thing Jeremy said to his parents before they got shot in a Seattle mall, before the train crash and before the Hideout. Jeremy is trying to survive with the stuff that he already had. You never know if you're at the wrong place at the wrong time.
One thing that I think Peg did well was describe what was happening like when the train crashed she didn't just say "Jeremy's train crashed and there's no hope for his life." She said that there was blood and steel every where. Another thing that Peg did really well was make me picture what was happening in the book like when Jeremy found the hideout.
At the end of the book Jeremy goes for a walk and finds a local store and he meets a girl and her mother and soon enough he gets to know them better and can tell them his story so they can help him as much as they can.
A book to reject vioence in many forms 23 Mar. 2006
By Diana - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an exciting story of a boy's courage when his life is turned upside down. It is also a story of love for all living things and a poignant rejection of violence.

The death of a bear to poachers who want the parts for souvenirs is a heart wrenching plea to end hunting for hunting's sake. The book ends with a suggestion that the reader (with parents' permission) write and sign an anti-violence promise.

This is a good, thoughtful book with a great message for kids.
Kehret Does It Again! 30 July 2013
By Holly T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an awesome children's book but Peg Kehret. It will keep you reading and not let you put it down. In the classroom, this is one book that I would frequently recommend to my reluctant readers because I knew that they would enjoy it. Also because once they read The Hideout, I could get them to read other Kehret books. I found that kids that like Kehret also enjoyed Will Hobbs and Gary Paulsen's River series. This is a must have for upper elementary and middle school classroom libraries.
