The story opens up with 21 year old Allison Glenn getting out of prison and entering a half way house. As the reader peeking in, you know she was in prison for murder, but it is several chapters before it is revealed who it was that she killed. And it is shocking. The complete opposite of what I had guessed. The story follows Allison as she reenters society and tries to put her life back together, getting a job and contacting her sister, Brynn, are the two most important things in her life. But as she completes both tasks, the whole story starts coming to light in a devastatingly heartbreaking way. You find it is a bit harder to remain hateful towards the killer. Things are not always what they seem, as you will soon find out.
I don't want to say too much and give away the important details, but These Hidden Things was a good read and so much more better than her first book. Check it out for a fast Saturday read, you can thank me after you have finished flying through the pages.
