A compelling, exuberant story of love, loss and survival, Hide and Seek is a startling debut that will make you cry and laugh out loud. Meet Harry Pickles, aged nine and a bit. Harry is the fastest boy runner in the world (probably), first son of Mo and Pa (the bestlooking parents in the school car park), big brother to Daniel (who runs like a girl but is, in his own twerpy way, a star). His life is good. He's premier league. At least, that's the way it was before the school trip ...Clare Sambrook's unforgettable first novel captures with startling truth and clarity the perspective of a confused nine year- old. Poignant and personal, Hide and Seek resonates with authenticity and a brutal honesty that manages to be harrowing, life-affirming and funny.
