Children Ages 10+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1991

THE HIDEOUT is a story that kids can relate to. Twelve-year-old Andy doesn't like his new stepdad and misses his natural father, who wants little to do with him. He decides to run away and takes shelter in a nearby luxury hotel's seldom used penthouse. He has some nice and harrowing experiences, which literally and figuratively help him to grow up and appreciate what he has left behind. Johnny Heller is super at portraying the young boy with his swiftly changing emotions. He effectively presents the differences in an elderly couple who befriend the boy and the tough hotel employee who makes Andy's fears come true. The fine story is enhanced by the narration, which brings to life the many thoughts, fears and feelings shared by young people and their parents.
