World events trickle down to individual lives. In Sneaking Suspicions the innocuous life of young Tharon Trace is impacted more than she ever imagined possible. She begins the day before she turns twelve with the usual dilemmas of other tweens: friendship, popularity and boys. By the end of the day she and her two best friends, Kaid Walker and Helm Harris, are fleeing from abductors after they witness a murder.
This mildly dystopian saga, set in 2056 centers around the themes of friendship, family and the will to survive.
One Amazon reader said, “The villains are scary, icky and driven.
The good guys are decent, upstanding and human. The parents want what’s best for their kids but make mistakes. The kids are bright and courageous, but still kids too.
The future Hinds has created is just different enough to be plausible, but not so unrecognizable. In fact, current events in the nation sometimes make me wonder. Hinds took that wonder to the next level in this freakily realistic and terrifying journey into the ‘what if’ category of plausible sci-fi.”
Another reader’s review states, “Not content with roping in a strict YA audience, Ms. Hinds has also interwoven romance, love, and suspense into a story with a solid sci-fi backdrop, along with some particularly nasty villains –at least two layers of baddies, to boot- mixed in to boost the fun.
Readers looking for an unusual thriller will not be disappointed with Ms. Hinds’ new book. While the romance and the cloak-and-dagger are marvelous, for me the real magic in the book belongs to the friendship shared by the three kids. If you had friends like this at school, you were really lucky. And if you didn’t, well, the kid in you will love meeting the friends you always wanted.”
Sneaking Suspicions is available in e-book format from amazon.com and in paperback from both Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
