Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick (YA)

Discussion started on

Okay, who among us hasn’t been simultaneously attracted to/repulsed by a bad boy? Something about danger, wildness, and stepping away from the known is at once exciting, yet scary…which makes it even more exciting.  Hush, Hush by  Becca Fitzpatrick (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers) is indeed about the proverbial bad boy.  So what do you do when that gorgeous, edgy guy you are falling for, turns out to be a fallen angel? Hm. Not exactly meet the parents material.  But excellent material for a YA novel, and this one kept me up most of the night as I eagerly flipped the pages to find out what would happen next to Nora and that dark-eyed mysterious guy, Patch.

I just finished this book and LOVED it!

I'm not sure what everyone that dissed it was talking about on Amazon. Of course Patch was manipulative! That's what makes him Patch.

I wrote a quick review on my blog.
