While I am on the lookout for more YA horror and adult horror novels by authors of color, I came across this middle grade horror book by Daka Hermon. Hide and Seeker sounds oh so creepy and reading the synopsis takes me back to when I was a kid who loved reading Goosebumps and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Cover is linked to Goodreads.
