The Lying Game #4: Hide and Seek has the usual cast, and continues where the previous book in the series left off. Mystery, deceit, and family secrets abound in this suspenseful page turner. A new group at school, The Devious Four, execute a prank that The Lying Game crew gets blamed for and revenge is planned. Blown up condoms and penis-shaped balloons are involved in a prank. Sneaking into the school for a dance that is not condoned or sponsored by school authorities resuslts in fleeing from the police. Language is graphic, though not overly prevalent (b-tch, a-s, a-shole, sh-t, f--ked). Emma uncovers layers of family drama that lead to surprising revelations. This story ends with quite a cliffhanger, leaving fans of this popular series wanting more.
