Set in the American South, The Hiding Place Girl is a painfully truthful telling of a girl's secret adolescence and young adulthood.  (Please note that this novel contains sexually explicit scenes.)

When she was a child, Renae and a boy named Patrick were friends. They shared adventures. They shared secret hiding places. But they never told each other about the secret worlds hidden inside their houses. Their sharing stopped one fall afternoon when Patrick walked home from school and found something terrible waiting for him there. After that day, what his family had hidden away was out in the open for all to see.

Years later, Renae's father dies suddenly. Staring at his casket in the funeral home, she tumbles back in memories to untangle the connections between herself as a young girl and the woman she has become. Her memories begin with Patrick, and in them she finds that the fearful choices she made when they were childhood friends are the choices she's been making ever since. Because the hidden world inside the house she grew up in has been following her
