"I loved it." --Stephen King From Jason Rekulak, Edgar-nominated author of The Impossible Fortress, comes a wildly inventive spin on the classic horror story in Hidden Pictures, a supernatural thriller about a woman working as a nanny for a young boy with strange and disturbing secrets. Fresh out of rehab, Mallory Quinn takes a job as a babysitter for Ted and Caroline Maxwell. She is to look after their five-year-old son, Teddy. Mallory immediately loves it. She has her own living space, goes out for nightly runs, and has the stability she craves. And she sincerely bonds with Teddy, a sweet, shy boy who is never without his sketchbook and pencil. His drawings are the usual fare: trees, rabbits, balloons. But one day, he draws something different: a man in a forest, dragging a woman's lifeless body. Then, Teddy's artwork becomes increasingly sinister, and his stick figures quickly evolve into lifelike sketches well beyond the ability of any five-year-old. Mallory begins to wonder if these are glimpses of a long-unsolved murder, perhaps relayed by a supernatural force. Knowing just how crazy it all sounds, Mallory nevertheless sets out to decipher the images and save Teddy before it's too late.… (més)

I inhaled this book. What an incredible horror/thriller. Every page I finished I kept thinking please let this continue to be good, and it genuinely was. The final twist took me by surprise, too, and the protagonist is truly wonderful.

This has been sitting on my shelf for a while, so I'm glad I picked it up. What a great read. ( )

I devoured this book in a single sitting.
Mallory, a 21-year-old recovering addict is hired to be a nanny for Caroline and Ted and their 5-year-old son, Teddy. When Teddy tells Mallory about his friend, Anya, and begins drawing strange pictures, Mallory knows that there is something sinister. A neighbor, Mitzi, tells Mallory the story of Annie Barrett, an artist that lived in the cottage where Mallory is staying, but mysteriously disappeared years ago. As Mallory senses someone watching her, and then begins experiencing Anya herself, she realizes that she is in great danger.
Told in verse as well as a lot of illustrations, this is a unique thriller. I absolutely loved it. ( )

CW: Drug addiction and use, mild sexual content (nothing graphic or explicit), Ouija board use, paranormal themes, murder

Mallory Quinn, a young woman on the road to recovery after drug addiction, wants to turn over a new leaf with her new job as Teddy's nanny. She is a very likable character and I enjoyed that she played a lead role without excessive adult language or explicit sexual content. (This is a clean novel, nothing explicit or graphic. Some innuendos and fade to black scenes.) Teddy is also a likable character that you cannot help but hope to help him be a normal little boy. Their bond was very well captured within the novel. Author Jason Rekulak's writing style is easy to follow and perfectly paced.

Along with a great writing style, I was definitely creeped out while reading this! Rekulak has a way of weaving together a story to feel as if the suspense and horror are in your own very own room. The drawings within the book gave such a fantastic touch to make you extra freaked out. I would not like my children to draw any of this, that's for sure! The twists toward the end are unexpected and believable. Overall, this was a great horror/thriller that truly creeped me out. ( )

So, technically this was a supernatural mystery but for me the best thing about it was the bond between main character Mallory and the five-year-old she’s taking care of for the summer. It’s up there with Be Frank with Me and Mary Jane, two books with babysitting themes that are both favorites of mine. As for the mystery, the pictures (actually, drawings) were a big part of it so I don’t know how well this would work as an audiobook and I was disappointed there was nothing ‘hidden’ about them. And what can I say about the let‑down of an ending without spoilers? Just that the book's spooky, ghost story vibe gave way to an explain-it-all-in-the-last-10% info dump that took what would have been a solid 4 star rating down to a 3½ that I honestly can’t round up ( )
