When Lauren’s mom becomes the prosecuting attorney in Bowie’s mom’s murder trial, Lauren should know better than to get involved. But her long-standing crush on Bowie makes staying away nearly impossible.
I loved Lauren’s character and felt an immediate connection to her. I related to the childhood torch she carried for Bowie and her insatiable curiosity. Patrick gives us lots more to enjoy here, from the incredible MC’s voice to the sultry Mississippi setting to the swoon-worthy relationship between Lauren and Bowie. And the mystery driving the plot of the story forward was so well-paced. I really enjoyed trying to work out the pieces of Bowie’s dad’s murder alongside the main characters.
In all, I highly recommend What He Hides to fans of contemporary YA looking for a good mystery to solve.
