Review: Hush, Hush

Hush, Hush

Title: Hush, Hush
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
ISBN/Publisher: 978-1-4169-8941-7/Simon & Schuster
Age Group/Genre: Young Adult

Sixteen year old Nora Grey is the smart girl in school and the one who will usually play it safe. But all things change when her best friend, Vee, and her are separated in bio. Now, she has a new lab partner, but everything in her tells her that this new partner, Patch Cipriano, is all trouble. But, there is something about him that draws her in.

The thing is, Patch shows up everywhere now. He's at the theme park (when she goes out with Vee and a couple of guys), outside the library (where she just got in a fight with another girl), and a few other places. This would be fine and normal, but Nora is also questioning her sanity because of some attacks that occur (someone smashing into her car and breaking into her house, but cleaning up afterwards). Poor Nora doesn't know who to turn to, but Patch seems to protect her. But is he the one doing this to her since she hears him in her mind???

Hush, Hush is such a fun and quick read. I couldn't put it down!!! I even risked car sickness so I can finish the last couple of chapters. Although, I may be a bit more biased about this book because as soon as I read that Patch's last name was Cipriano, I was shocked and happy because that's my dad's middle name (and I've never seen any family names in any books I've read).

This was the first angel type book I read in the paranormal teen genre. These fallen angels surely got me hooked and the fact that it included a little bit of teen romance, made it even more fun to read. However, I need to add that I did scream at Nora because she did make some stupid choices, but she's a teen in a paranormal book so I guess that was bound to happen. And Hush, Hush had a creepy type feel to it as I read it because of the mysterious stalker or stalkers in it and I kept wanting to know what would happen next.

I'll definitely recommend this book, especially if you are fans of the paranormal genre. I can't wait to read more of Becca Fitzpatrick's books!!!

Just a few fave parts...
Stepping on a corner of first base, I rounded it, sprinting toward second. Left field had the ball now, in postition to throw me out. I put my head down, pumped my arms, and tried to remember how the pros on ESPN slid into base. Feetfirst? Headfirst? Stop, drop, and roll? p. 87

  1. Sadly, I STILL have to read this book, and it keeps receiving praise!

    Thank you for the review, it really was interesting and well-written.

  2. I loved the teaser you included.....

  3. Nikola...def. read it. I just read the summary for the next book & I'm super stoked about it.

    MarceJ...I'm glad you enjoyed it. I was cracking up when I read this since I grew up loving and watching tons of baseball.

  4. I really enjoyed reading your review, Jenn-ay. I couldn't put down Hush, Hush either. I know some readers complains over the fact that Patch seems a bit like a creepy stalker but I have to admit that I really like his character.

  5. Ladybug...It was kind of creepy, but that was one part of the book that kept me wanting more. It was a creepy/mysterious part of him.
