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 best-looking 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.
