Everyone who played in the game has a mark on their wrist. And then they disappear.The kids are pulled into a shadow world — the Nowhere — ruled by the monstrous, shape-shifting Seeker.

        Starred review from June 1, 2020
        Justin and his friends play their last game of hide-and-seek at their friend Zee's not-so-welcome-home party. Zee had gone missing one week after Justin's mother passed away just one year ago, and the party is celebrating his return. But the emaciated Zee is acting strangely, mumbling rhymes about a Seeker that will take them all. Shortly after the party, one by one, Justin's other friends begin to disappear. It doesn't take long for the remaining members of the crew to figure out that Zee's strange behavior may be connected to the disappearances. Justin, Nia, and Lyric set out on a trail of clues and possible suspects, hoping to find their missing peers. No sooner do the details of the mystery begin to come to light than Justin, the last of the group, is unwillingly transported into the realm of Nowhere. In this parallel universe, the Seeker keeps children hostage, feeding off of their fears. This dark nail-biter, set in a small Tennessee town and featuring a largely African American cast (Lyric is the only white kid), weaves a creepy spin on a childhood game that quickly slips into a Stephen King-esque tale of horror. Can the children trapped in Nowhere gather as allies to evade the Seeker and get home? A chilling debut--like the Seeker, a tale that doesn't let you go. (Horror. 10-12)

        Starred review from October 26, 2020
        Zee, sixth-grader Justin’s best friend, has been missing for over a year—404 days to be exact. Now he’s home, and his mother, Mrs. Murphy, is throwing a party. Invited along with Justin are other close friends Nia and Lyric, as well as the neighborhood bully, Carla, and her twin brother, Quincy. While waiting for the guest of honor, another neighborhood kid, Shae, arrives and suggests that they play hide-and-seek. The game devolves into a flurry of rule-breaking soon interrupted by the arrival of a changed, scarred Zee, who conveys a cryptic message: “One day soon you’ll leave from here and fight against all you fear.” When the game’s players develop a mysterious mark and begin to disappear one by one, Justin and his friends must find a way to defeat a chilling foe in a world made up of their darkest fears. Hermon’s standout debut offers spine-tingling prose that pulls no punches; nuanced depictions of grief, friendship, and fear; engaging characterization that makes readers root for its largely Black cast; and a reassuring ending that leaves room for future installments. Ages 8–12. Agent: Emily Keyes, Fuse Literary.

        Zee had been missing for over a year. Now he's back, but something is not right. From the moment Justin, Lyric, and Nia arrive at Zee's house to celebrate his homecoming and birthday, things are very strange indeed. Attempting to reconnect with their friend and distract themselves with some fun, they play a game of hide and seek -- which turns menacing as the friends start to disappear one by one. Hermon spins a gripping tale that draws readers into a world where friendships are put to the ultimate test and grief, loss, and terror are around every corner. In the bizarre underworld of "the Seeker," one's fears become reality. As his friends disappear, narrator Justin must find the courage to help them, all while confronting his own fears. At times moving, thrilling, and downright scary, this suspenseful horror story delivers a welcome diverse (mostly Black) cast and well-rounded characters. Those who "seek" stories that will surely keep them up at night need look no further. Monique Harris
