The Lovereading4Kids comment
A gripping romance tinged with a strange and dark side as forces from long, long ago. Nora never meant to get into a deep romance and she certainly never means to fall for Patch. But Patch’s blue eyes are irresistible even if his behaviour is unpredictable. Nora gets seriously concerned when Patch seems to know everything about her. How does he do that? Soon Nora finds she is caught up in powers that are outside the normal. How can she stay in the present and stay safe?
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Nora's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, she is drawn to him against her better judgement. But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and knows more about her than her closest friends.And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel. For Nora is right in the middle of a centuries-old battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and sooner or later, she's going to have to pick sides...
