"Hush Hush" by Becca Fitzpatrick


HUSH HUSH
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Publisher: Simon And Schuster
Published: 2009

SYNOPSIS

Nora Grey is a normal sixteen year old girl attending school, and when the seating plan changes in her biology lessons and she ends up next to the mysterious Patch, things start to change for her.

After a series of terrifying encounters, Nora isn't sure if she can trust him. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and to know more about her than her closest friends.



REVIEW

This book was almost as bad as Twilight, and Nora had a severe dose of what I like to call "Bella Syndrome" - making stupid rash decisions due to a crush and also having no description whatsoever making it easy for girls to imagine being her and being in the situation that she's in with Patch with all the flirtatious nature about to make all the teen girls jealous.

It was just boring and repetitive throughout the first three quarters of the book with Nora constantly being indecisive and annoying; and not forgetting her ridiculously shallow and gullible friend Vee who bugged me to the core.

If you are a teen girl then you will love this book, even if it's just for Patch's remarks, expressions and actions throughout it. It's written in a way that would make any teen girl fantasise about having a boyfriend just like Patch which is quite unoriginal and this whole concept has been written a million and one times before.

When the (obvious - due to the blurb on the back) twist came out about Patch being a fallen angel, then and only then, did it start to get a bit more interesting. There was more action and development after about the 275 page mark I found due to this and I found myself on the edge of my seat reading it, half wondering (half predicting the obvious) what would happen in the end. I was pleasantly surprised by the writing and description towards the end of the book in the climax. That alone was enough to, not make me rate this book higher, but to chance reading the next book in the slim hope that something can be rescued from it so it doesn't die a tragic obvious Twilight death that I most certainly do not want.
