    Surprisingly good though I expected a little bit more action. 1. First things first, I do love the cover. Will surely would pick this up and get intrigued if I were walking on a bookstore. 2. The 1st chapter automatically captured my attention which is an A+. 3. The writing-sty...

    Suspenseful and breathlessly paced. I could NOT put this one down. Definitely keep an eye out for this book when it publishes in November! ...

    The title sounds super cheesy, the cover is kind of off-putting for me, BUT I enjoyed reading this book. It's been so long since I'd enjoyed a good YA novel (most of those nowadays are just crappy replicas of crappy originals). There's nothing particular I liked about it; I'm not e...

    This is genuinely the best piece of writing I?ve read in a very long time. I?m 22 years old and very picky about which shows, movies, or books deserve my attention, but when I like something, I REALLY like something. I could have read Hide With Me in one day, but purposefully slowe...

    This book has everything you?re looking for! Romance, check. Edge-of-your-seat suspense, check. Keep you up past 4 AM because you HAVE TO KNOW what happens next, CHECK, CHECK, CHECK! Hide With Me hooked me from the very first pages, and I literally couldn?t put it down?sleep? Who...

    I listened to this on audiobook. The story is intriguing at first but the plot, teenagers vs the Mexican drug cartel is far-fetched. I enjoyed it for its story line and character but I don't need to hear about teenagers making out or engaging in sex. Yuck. ...

    I enjoyed this book immensely. The story and creative descriptive writing made for such an interesting and easy read. I read the book in 2 days and could not put the book down. My 15 year old daughter is reading it now and loves it. Such a perfect balance of young love, adventure and m...

    Hide With Me was a fast-paced YA novel that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. Written in a voice that felt familiar, it blended romance, character development, and place in a way that easily transported me to Tanner Texas. ...

    In Sorboni Banerjee's Hide With Me, I experienced a breathtaking snapshot of a life. No, I won't even call it an adventure, because that term indicates something fantastic or unrealistic - and Hide With Me felt anything but. Hide With me is the most realistic, gritty, and excitingly su...

    Fast paced but the themes and setting are too heavy for YA I think. And while the ending was satisfying it was unrealistic and a dangerous message to send teenagers! Read for popsugar 2018 challenge prompt: A book by a local author ...

    Recently released in November 2018 by Razorbill, Hide With Me, a debut novel by Sorboni Banerjee,is a captivating YA thrill ride which I could hardly put down once I had started. Clearly I'm not a young adult, and I would recommend this for both teens and adults. This book has a b...

    Sorboni Banerjee?s debut novel, Hide With Me, is a realistic fiction tale of adventure and belonging. Cade is a high school football star living in Tanner, Texas, a small town near the United States-Mexico border. One day he finds a girl in a field behind his house covered in blood. ...

    I highly recommend "Hide With Me", a book that will be enjoyable to many audiences, if my experience is a guide, and is sure to resonate with young adults in particular. The author gets the key ingredients right in this one across character development, world creation, and the pacing a...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I started reading HIDE WITH ME by Sorboni Banerjee, on a Friday night and finished on Sunday and that is only because I made myself slow down to make the experience last longer. This story hooks you immediately with the opening scene and doesn't slow dow...

    Action-packed book with a great opening premise: Cade discovers an injured girl in his Texas cornfield, her belly slashed, and she doesn't want him to take her to a doctor or to the police; instead, she wants him to hide her! So begins this exciting story, about a girl on the run who i...

    A good read with a fast moving pace after the first quarter of the book. The story about Jane, Kade, the Mexican cartel, and some other interesting characters in a small town of Tranyor, TX is believable and engaging. The descriptions of the cartel violence is stomach churning (at leas...

    Fast-paced, edgy, and unlike any upper YA thriller I've ever read. The chapters were James Patterson short and the plot fast-paced, but the writing itself did not suffer in the least. Each chapter held little pockets of literary mastery. Juicy morsels I wanted to enjoy. I devoured the ...

    Loved the beginning but then slowly became less and less interested. Had to force myself to finish it. No really logical reason why I stopped enjoying it. I did find the sudden love between Cade and Krista a bit difficult to believe but that?s not why I didn?t enjoy it. Just found ...

    Entertaining and fast paced read. This is not a genre that I normally read, but I was completely hooked from the start. The author's use of alternating perspectives is unique (at least to me) and helped create a great flow throughout the novel. It also created the suspense that kept...

    I got sucked into this book from the beginning. I liked the characters and the interesting story line. There is some gross violence and upsetting abuse, especially for a young adult novel. It was a solid four star read, until the end-which is abrubt and leaves a lot unanswered. The las...

    While I think the book has wide appeal to teen readers, by the end the author had lost me as to the reality of the plot and premise. I believe this could have been done better with regards to bringing light to the ways that cartels can impact life in border towns - and would like to ha...

    I enjoyed this book a lot. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because each chapter alternated between Cade, Jane, and Lobenzo, the villain. I had difficulty distinguishing between the voices of Jane and Cade and had to keep checking the beginning of the chapter to see who was talking. Maybe ...

    Definitely adding to my class library. Set in a Texas border town and told in multiple POVs. I can see my students really getting into the book because there seem to be cliffhangers at the end of many of the chapters that make you keep on reading. ...

    Only one complaint. The ending felt rushed. Other than that great story with an untrustworthy back and forth narration. I loved every minute of it. ...

    It was a great book. ...

    This review was originally published on Lone Star Literary Life. Sorboni Banerjee?s timely debut young adult fiction, Hide with Me, catches fire on the very first line, ?The girl was like a train,? and the story never stops burning, filling the pages with tension, heartache, y...

    In Sorboni Banerjee's Hide With Me, I experienced a breathtaking snapshot of a life. No, I won't even call it an adventure, because that term indicates something fantastic or unrealistic - and Hide With Me felt anything but. Hide With me is the most realistic, gritty, and excitingly su...

    Fast paced but the themes and setting are too heavy for YA I think. And while the ending was satisfying it was unrealistic and a dangerous message to send teenagers! Read for popsugar 2018 challenge prompt: A book by a local author ...

    Recently released in November 2018 by Razorbill, Hide With Me, a debut novel by Sorboni Banerjee,is a captivating YA thrill ride which I could hardly put down once I had started. Clearly I'm not a young adult, and I would recommend this for both teens and adults. This book has a b...

    Sorboni Banerjee?s debut novel, Hide With Me, is a realistic fiction tale of adventure and belonging. Cade is a high school football star living in Tanner, Texas, a small town near the United States-Mexico border. One day he finds a girl in a field behind his house covered in blood. ...

    I highly recommend "Hide With Me", a book that will be enjoyable to many audiences, if my experience is a guide, and is sure to resonate with young adults in particular. The author gets the key ingredients right in this one across character development, world creation, and the pacing a...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I started reading HIDE WITH ME by Sorboni Banerjee, on a Friday night and finished on Sunday and that is only because I made myself slow down to make the experience last longer. This story hooks you immediately with the opening scene and doesn't slow dow...

    Action-packed book with a great opening premise: Cade discovers an injured girl in his Texas cornfield, her belly slashed, and she doesn't want him to take her to a doctor or to the police; instead, she wants him to hide her! So begins this exciting story, about a girl on the run who i...

    Face-paced YA thriller I was unable to put down. These characters are complicated, but Banerjee doesn't take away from the action to dive too deep into the character's backstory... action, action, action! The author expertly develops conflict through quick dialogue which actually sound...

    A good read with a fast moving pace after the first quarter of the book. The story about Jane, Kade, the Mexican cartel, and some other interesting characters in a small town of Tranyor, TX is believable and engaging. The descriptions of the cartel violence is stomach churning (at leas...

    Fast-paced, edgy, and unlike any upper YA thriller I've ever read. The chapters were James Patterson short and the plot fast-paced, but the writing itself did not suffer in the least. Each chapter held little pockets of literary mastery. Juicy morsels I wanted to enjoy. I devoured the ...

    Definitely adding to my class library. Set in a Texas border town and told in multiple POVs. I can see my students really getting into the book because there seem to be cliffhangers at the end of many of the chapters that make you keep on reading. ...

    I listened to this on audiobook. The story is intriguing at first but the plot, teenagers vs the Mexican drug cartel is far-fetched. I enjoyed it for its story line and character but I don't need to hear about teenagers making out or engaging in sex. Yuck. ...

    I enjoyed this book immensely. The story and creative descriptive writing made for such an interesting and easy read. I read the book in 2 days and could not put the book down. My 15 year old daughter is reading it now and loves it. Such a perfect balance of young love, adventure and m...

    Hide With Me was a fast-paced YA novel that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. Written in a voice that felt familiar, it blended romance, character development, and place in a way that easily transported me to Tanner Texas. ...

    In Sorboni Banerjee's Hide With Me, I experienced a breathtaking snapshot of a life. No, I won't even call it an adventure, because that term indicates something fantastic or unrealistic - and Hide With Me felt anything but. Hide With me is the most realistic, gritty, and excitingly su...

    Recently released in November 2018 by Razorbill, Hide With Me, a debut novel by Sorboni Banerjee,is a captivating YA thrill ride which I could hardly put down once I had started. Clearly I'm not a young adult, and I would recommend this for both teens and adults. This book has a b...

    Sorboni Banerjee?s debut novel, Hide With Me, is a realistic fiction tale of adventure and belonging. Cade is a high school football star living in Tanner, Texas, a small town near the United States-Mexico border. One day he finds a girl in a field behind his house covered in blood. ...

    I highly recommend "Hide With Me", a book that will be enjoyable to many audiences, if my experience is a guide, and is sure to resonate with young adults in particular. The author gets the key ingredients right in this one across character development, world creation, and the pacing a...

    Action-packed book with a great opening premise: Cade discovers an injured girl in his Texas cornfield, her belly slashed, and she doesn't want him to take her to a doctor or to the police; instead, she wants him to hide her! So begins this exciting story, about a girl on the run who i...

    Face-paced YA thriller I was unable to put down. These characters are complicated, but Banerjee doesn't take away from the action to dive too deep into the character's backstory... action, action, action! The author expertly develops conflict through quick dialogue which actually sound...

    The girl is like a train. After that first line, Sorboni Banerjee?s Hide With Me takes off on a high speed adventure exploring both the light and dark side of life. Banerjee laid down tracks of beautiful prose interwoven with a plot that moves at lightning speed. If you love James Pa...

    It?s been a long time since I have sped through a teenage love novel, but I finished this action- packed story in just about two days. It was hard to put down, as it felt like there was always another surprise waiting for me around the corner. Sorboni Banerjee brilliantly weaves t...

    A good read with a fast moving pace after the first quarter of the book. The story about Jane, Kade, the Mexican cartel, and some other interesting characters in a small town of Tranyor, TX is believable and engaging. The descriptions of the cartel violence is stomach churning (at leas...

    Fast-paced, edgy, and unlike any upper YA thriller I've ever read. The chapters were James Patterson short and the plot fast-paced, but the writing itself did not suffer in the least. Each chapter held little pockets of literary mastery. Juicy morsels I wanted to enjoy. I devoured the ...

    Loved the beginning but then slowly became less and less interested. Had to force myself to finish it. No really logical reason why I stopped enjoying it. I did find the sudden love between Cade and Krista a bit difficult to believe but that?s not why I didn?t enjoy it. Just found ...

    Entertaining and fast paced read. This is not a genre that I normally read, but I was completely hooked from the start. The author's use of alternating perspectives is unique (at least to me) and helped create a great flow throughout the novel. It also created the suspense that kept...

    I got sucked into this book from the beginning. I liked the characters and the interesting story line. There is some gross violence and upsetting abuse, especially for a young adult novel. It was a solid four star read, until the end-which is abrubt and leaves a lot unanswered. The las...

    While I think the book has wide appeal to teen readers, by the end the author had lost me as to the reality of the plot and premise. I believe this could have been done better with regards to bringing light to the ways that cartels can impact life in border towns - and would like to ha...

    I enjoyed this book a lot. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because each chapter alternated between Cade, Jane, and Lobenzo, the villain. I had difficulty distinguishing between the voices of Jane and Cade and had to keep checking the beginning of the chapter to see who was talking. Maybe ...

    Definitely adding to my class library. Set in a Texas border town and told in multiple POVs. I can see my students really getting into the book because there seem to be cliffhangers at the end of many of the chapters that make you keep on reading. ...

    The girl is like a train. After that first line, Sorboni Banerjee?s Hide With Me takes off on a high speed adventure exploring both the light and dark side of life. Banerjee laid down tracks of beautiful prose interwoven with a plot that moves at lightning speed. If you love James Pa...

    It?s been a long time since I have sped through a teenage love novel, but I finished this action- packed story in just about two days. It was hard to put down, as it felt like there was always another surprise waiting for me around the corner. Sorboni Banerjee brilliantly weaves t...

    Surprisingly good though I expected a little bit more action. 1. First things first, I do love the cover. Will surely would pick this up and get intrigued if I were walking on a bookstore. 2. The 1st chapter automatically captured my attention which is an A+. 3. The writing-sty...

    Suspenseful and breathlessly paced. I could NOT put this one down. Definitely keep an eye out for this book when it publishes in November! ...

    The title sounds super cheesy, the cover is kind of off-putting for me, BUT I enjoyed reading this book. It's been so long since I'd enjoyed a good YA novel (most of those nowadays are just crappy replicas of crappy originals). There's nothing particular I liked about it; I'm not e...

    This is genuinely the best piece of writing I?ve read in a very long time. I?m 22 years old and very picky about which shows, movies, or books deserve my attention, but when I like something, I REALLY like something. I could have read Hide With Me in one day, but purposefully slowe...

    This book has everything you?re looking for! Romance, check. Edge-of-your-seat suspense, check. Keep you up past 4 AM because you HAVE TO KNOW what happens next, CHECK, CHECK, CHECK! Hide With Me hooked me from the very first pages, and I literally couldn?t put it down?sleep? Who...

    I listened to this on audiobook. The story is intriguing at first but the plot, teenagers vs the Mexican drug cartel is far-fetched. I enjoyed it for its story line and character but I don't need to hear about teenagers making out or engaging in sex. Yuck. ...

    I enjoyed this book immensely. The story and creative descriptive writing made for such an interesting and easy read. I read the book in 2 days and could not put the book down. My 15 year old daughter is reading it now and loves it. Such a perfect balance of young love, adventure and m...

    Hide With Me was a fast-paced YA novel that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. Written in a voice that felt familiar, it blended romance, character development, and place in a way that easily transported me to Tanner Texas. ...

    In Sorboni Banerjee's Hide With Me, I experienced a breathtaking snapshot of a life. No, I won't even call it an adventure, because that term indicates something fantastic or unrealistic - and Hide With Me felt anything but. Hide With me is the most realistic, gritty, and excitingly su...

    Fast paced but the themes and setting are too heavy for YA I think. And while the ending was satisfying it was unrealistic and a dangerous message to send teenagers! Read for popsugar 2018 challenge prompt: A book by a local author ...

    Recently released in November 2018 by Razorbill, Hide With Me, a debut novel by Sorboni Banerjee,is a captivating YA thrill ride which I could hardly put down once I had started. Clearly I'm not a young adult, and I would recommend this for both teens and adults. This book has a b...

    Sorboni Banerjee?s debut novel, Hide With Me, is a realistic fiction tale of adventure and belonging. Cade is a high school football star living in Tanner, Texas, a small town near the United States-Mexico border. One day he finds a girl in a field behind his house covered in blood. ...

    I highly recommend "Hide With Me", a book that will be enjoyable to many audiences, if my experience is a guide, and is sure to resonate with young adults in particular. The author gets the key ingredients right in this one across character development, world creation, and the pacing a...

    A good read with a fast moving pace after the first quarter of the book. The story about Jane, Kade, the Mexican cartel, and some other interesting characters in a small town of Tranyor, TX is believable and engaging. The descriptions of the cartel violence is stomach churning (at leas...

    Fast-paced, edgy, and unlike any upper YA thriller I've ever read. The chapters were James Patterson short and the plot fast-paced, but the writing itself did not suffer in the least. Each chapter held little pockets of literary mastery. Juicy morsels I wanted to enjoy. I devoured the ...

    Loved the beginning but then slowly became less and less interested. Had to force myself to finish it. No really logical reason why I stopped enjoying it. I did find the sudden love between Cade and Krista a bit difficult to believe but that?s not why I didn?t enjoy it. Just found ...

    Entertaining and fast paced read. This is not a genre that I normally read, but I was completely hooked from the start. The author's use of alternating perspectives is unique (at least to me) and helped create a great flow throughout the novel. It also created the suspense that kept...

    I got sucked into this book from the beginning. I liked the characters and the interesting story line. There is some gross violence and upsetting abuse, especially for a young adult novel. It was a solid four star read, until the end-which is abrubt and leaves a lot unanswered. The las...

    While I think the book has wide appeal to teen readers, by the end the author had lost me as to the reality of the plot and premise. I believe this could have been done better with regards to bringing light to the ways that cartels can impact life in border towns - and would like to ha...

    I enjoyed this book a lot. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because each chapter alternated between Cade, Jane, and Lobenzo, the villain. I had difficulty distinguishing between the voices of Jane and Cade and had to keep checking the beginning of the chapter to see who was talking. Maybe ...

    Definitely adding to my class library. Set in a Texas border town and told in multiple POVs. I can see my students really getting into the book because there seem to be cliffhangers at the end of many of the chapters that make you keep on reading. ...

    Only one complaint. The ending felt rushed. Other than that great story with an untrustworthy back and forth narration. I loved every minute of it. ...

    It was a great book. ...

    This review was originally published on Lone Star Literary Life. Sorboni Banerjee?s timely debut young adult fiction, Hide with Me, catches fire on the very first line, ?The girl was like a train,? and the story never stops burning, filling the pages with tension, heartache, y...
