Nora Grey (16) has never had a boy on her radar. Ever. Not until Patch, the new kid in her high school. She is drawn to him against her better judgment. Something is different about him, and she is determined to figure out what. After a series of terrifying encounters, however, Nora’s not sure whom she can trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and she can’t tell whether she should learn more about him or run away. When she learns some answers, she is more unsettled than she has ever been – for she is in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those who have fallen. When it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice could cost Nora her life…
Exciting and captivating for anyone who loves romance, fantasy and Young Adult. Readers will discover more to the story than angel lore. Suspense and mystery will have readers intrigued - and surprised.
Romance is a central theme, and there is mild violence. Even though this is a 4th grade reading level, the themes are for high school students.
Teen 1: I have not been read a lot in this specific genre, but I really enjoyed the angel lore associated with this book. I found it intriguing. I also enjoyed the mystery/suspense of what was to come. Even knowing it was about angels didn't give away the real climax of the story. I was pleasantly surprised.
That said, the one thing that really put me off about this book was the focus on the romance. I like romance in a book, but this seemed to be the driving point for Hush Hush, and I wish the author had invested more into building suspense.
Teen 2: Hush, Hush is one of my favorite book series. I read the first book because a friend recommended it and I loved it. It was so interesting and fascinating and kept reading until I finished the series. I think I liked it so much because it is a romance novel between humans and non-humans (no vampires or werewolves).
This is the first book in a young adult series about the relationship between a mortal and a fallen angel who wants to become human. 4.5
This is a book for recreational reading.

Borrow. This is a good book, but before investing in the series, you might want to see if it is one where you want every book. If you know teen interested in romance novels and angel lore, this would be a nice gift.
