She wants the truth... or does she? They say nothing interesting ever happens in Bell, Mississippi, but this summer, that’s all changed. Sixteen-year-old Lauren’s district attorney mother is prosecuting the biggest murder trial of her career, and Lauren’s lifelong crush, Bowie Weston, has finally noticed she’s alive. Too bad it’s for the wrong reason. He’s the son of the defendant. Bowie’s determined to keep his mom out of prison, and he believes Lauren may be the key. But while she wants to believe in Bowie and wishes she could help him, she knows better than to interfere. Her mom has already sacrificed so much for this case--she can't lose the trial, too. And Lauren wonders, like everyone in town, how much Bowie knows about what happened the night his father died. And whether he was somehow involved. All Lauren knows for sure is that someone is lying. If she risks helping Bowie, she might be able to prove his mother’s innocence and finally win his heart. But in the process, she could lose much more. **Perfect for readers who crave the breathless romance of first love combined with a deliciously deceptive psychological thriller. The unexpected twists, shocking revelations, juicy secrets and compelling suspense build right up until the surprising conclusion.

Fans of Karen McManus will enjoy the twists and turns in WHAT HE HIDES.

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.
