    “The perfect middle grade book for fans of mystery and puzzles. While reading the book, you will want to be part of friend group, The GEEKs, as they go through town on a treasure hunt to solve the puzzles left by the famous puzzle maker, Maxine, in order to save their town. This book is filled with heart, dynamic friendship, and you won’t be able to put it down.”

    Hide and Geek is everything fun and fantastic about great Middle Grade books! Loyal friends, a mystery to solve, and a dog named Sauce! Gina and her friends, the GEEKs, set out to get the scoop for the local newspaper and save their town. Along the way they’ve got to manage a campaign for Class President, prepare for science camp, outsmart the school bully, solve a mystery involving millions of dollars and the Bamboozler toy that once made their small town famous. Team Geek must use all their investigative skills to try to solve the most difficult set of puzzles they’ve come across.”

    —Susan Williams, M. Judson Booksellers, Greenville, SC

    “These GEEKs are about to solve a mystery and save their town — if they can save their friendship first! Filled with plot twists and puzzles, Jagger’s debut is perfect for fans of Enola Holmes or The Goonies! You will fall in love with these kids, their hometown, and — of course — Sauce, the basset terrier!”
    —Laura Graveline, Brazos Bookstore, Houston, TX
