"Outstanding on every level."—Jeff Zentner, Morris Award-winning author of The Serpent King and Goodbye Days
"Suspenseful and gritty, Hide With Me is a beautifully written novel that captivates from the very first page."—Robin Roe, author of A List of Cages
Debut author Sorboni Banerjee crafts a gripping story about the unbreakable bonds of friendship, the sweeping power of first love, and the courage to fight for a brighter future against all odds.
In the dying cornfields of his family's farm, seventeen-year-old Cade finds a girl broken and bleeding. She has one request: hide me.
Tucked away in an abandoned barn on the edge of the farm, the mysterious Jane Doe starts to heal and details of her past begin to surface. A foster kid looking for a way out, Jane got caught up in the wrong crowd and barely escaped with her life.
Cade has a difficult past of his own. He's been trapped in the border town of Tanner, Texas, his whole life. His dad is a drunk. His mom is gone. Money is running out. Cade is focused on one thing, a football scholarship—his only chance.
Cade and Jane spend their nights in the barn planning their escapes, and their days with Cade's friends: sweet, artistic Mateo and his determined sister Jojo who vows to be president one day.
But it's not that easy to disappear.
Just across the border in a city in Mexico lies the life Jane desperately wants to leave behind—a past filled with drugs and danger, information she never wanted, and a cartel boss who is watching her every move.
Jane Doe's past is far from over, and the secret she holds could kill them all.
