HIDDEN-2- small- stickerHidden, a novel-in-verse by Helen Frost, has two perspectives and two time-frames. Wren and Darra meet at summer camp, but they’ve already had a life-changing interaction at age seven even thought they didn’t see each other face-to-face. Poignant poetry unravels the crime that intersected their lives.

Hidden explains more than just the title; there are hidden narrations within Darra’s poems (which the author explains how to decode in the end notes), Wren was hidden at age seven for self-preservation, both characters keep thoughts and fears hidden.
