Review: Hidden (+ Reading Rush Wrap-Up)

Hey, everyone! Today I’m bringing you a review for Hidden, written by Helen Frost. This was the third and final book I read for The Reading Rush. Reading this fulfilled the prompt of reading a book in the same spot the whole time.
I’m actually quite pleased with the fact that I managed to read three books throughout the course of the week and earn a total of six badges! I wish that I could have reached 10000 pages but I was really close! I don’t participate in readathons often, but I had a really good time and I’m looking forward to taking part again next year.

See my review for Bad Girls with Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten (read a book with five or more words in the title)
See my review for After by Anna Todd (read and watch a book to movie adaptation & read an author’s first book)

Goodreads Synopsis:
When Wren Abbott and Darra Monson are eight years old, Darra’s father steals a minivan. He doesn’t know that Wren is hiding in the back. The hours and days that follow change the lives of both girls. Darra is left with a question that only Wren can answer. Wren has questions, too.
Years later, in a chance encounter at camp, the girls face each other for the first time. They can finally learn the truth—that is, if they’re willing to reveal to each other the stories that they’ve hidden for so long. Told from alternating viewpoints, this novel-in-poems reveals the complexities of memory and the strength of a friendship that can overcome pain.
