What We Hide is a slower paced Young Adult novel that takes place in a British boarding school during the Vietnam War era. If you're expecting some major conflict to occur, you'll be disappointed. The narrative revolves around eight different protagonists, all of whom are wrestling with their own darkness. This is a story about how our actions and choices influence how others see us, and how people tell lies and put on airs in order to be viewed (or not viewed as the case may be) in a certain way.

Due to the slower pacing of the book, the multiple protagonist POV, and the sexual content, this is definitely not a book for everyone. However, the writing is enjoyable and thought provoking as readers are exposed to characters from a variety of different backgrounds.
