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.

    Imagine being kidnapped by accident. That's what happens to Wren,  one of the main characters in the book ​Hidden​. ​Hidden​ is a realistic  fiction book written by Helen Frost. In the book ​Hidden​, Wren Abbott is  a 8 year old girl who gets kidnapped by Darra Monson’s father. The  kidnapping was an accident but it left both the girls with many  questions for each other. A couple years both Darra and Wren meet at  a camp. Both girls starting answering each other's questions and  revealing the truths. This book is amazing. It is written from both  Wren’s and Darra’s point of view, which makes the book more  interesting. I would rate it four out of five stars. The type of readers  who would like this book would be readers who like books about  friendship and suspense. Helen Frost has also written many other  books like ​Keesha’s House​ and ​Diamond Willow.

      The book I read was Hidden by Helen Frost. The book Hidden is about a girl named Wern got kidnapped by accident. Wern was hiding in a little girl's house. The little girl name was Darra. They meet at a summer camp, and they recognized each other. I think that the book Hidden was a great book. Because, it had some action, drama, and many other things. Also I was surprised when they meet at the summer camp, and saw each other for the first time in six years. This book is realistic fiction. Because it had places, events, this story also could of happen in real life. People who should read this would be people who like some drama, action, courage. People would also like this book because if you like summer camps.
