Hide and Seek

Jess Tennant Mysteries (Volume 3)

Jane Casey

St. Martin's Griffin



It's Christmastime in Port Sentinel, the tiny English town where Jess Tennant has been living for more than a year now. Jess wasn't sure how she felt about moving to Port Sentinel when her mom dragged her there right in the middle of high school, but even Jess has to admit the town has completely outdone itself for the holidays. There's a Christmas market complete with a mini ice-rink and fairy lights, and the bare trees stand stark against the sky.

But for Gilly Poynter, one of Jess's classmates, the Christmas season is anything but magical. She's disappeared, leaving behind only her diary and a lot of questions. Has she run away from her unhappy home, or has something more sinister happened? And will Jess be able to find her before it's too late?

Hide and Seek is another cleverly crafted, charming mystery from acclaimed author Jane Casey.


As parties went, it was a fairly typical Port Sentinel night out: too many people crammed into a large, expensive house, most of them in some sort of costume, all of them determined to have fun. If there was one thing I'd learned...

Praise for Hide and Seek

“I fell in love with Jess Tennant. Jess is feisty, fierce and incapable of backing down-even when her pursuit of the truth might get her killed.” —April Henry, New York Times bestselling author of Girl, Stolen

“Casey creates a stark, immersive setting and believably despicable teenage characters...The clever banter and the truly devious side characters will keep readers invested...[A] page-turner.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Irish crime author Casey makes a foray into YA with this fast-paced thriller...Jess is hard-edged, blunt, and aggressive-the kind of heroine who doesn't cower when she's met with hostility by some of the local teens who knew Freya, and who isn't going to be dissuaded from finding out what really happened to her cousin.” —Publishers Weekly

How to Fall is a very gripping book, it just makes you want to read it all in one go.” —The Guardian (UK)
