Hidden
by Helen Frost

Summary: When Darra's father steals a car, Wren is hiding in the back seat.  This accidental kidnapping changes the lives of the two girls forever.  Years later they come face-to-face and try to make sense of what happened that ill-fated day. 

Thoughts: Helen Frost is a truly incredible author.  The way she weaves stories so creatively through poetry is amazing in itself; but then, she goes beyond using inventive forms to tell secondary stories and to beautifully play with words and themes!  Fascinating! Hidden is a unique, absorbing story.  The plot is original and seems to be straight from the headlines of today's world.  I liked these two girls - particularly Daria and how she made the right choices even when adults around her were not.
