Hush, Hush -- Becca Fitzpatrick

Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgement.But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether to fall into his arms or run and hide. 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 she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those who have fallen--and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.

I finished this book a while ago and I can't wait until I have enough money to get the sequel! Personally, I liked this book, but I felt like it was lacking something. So I would give it a 4/5. The cover of this book is astounding, and I really like the contrast between the red feathers and the black-and-white background. I really liked Patch's voice and the twists that surround this book. It somewhat reminds me of City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, because while reading, you think that the story is going to go one way and then as you read you can sense a change, but you do not know when this change will occur. In the end you are blindsided by a fantastic ending and a new story to listen to.

Nora was a typical teenage girl, she gets good grades and spends some time tutoring her best friend, Vee. That is, until an unexpected seat change puts Nora sitting next to Patch; the mysterious new guy without a past. When Nora meets Jules and Elliot, and her life gets weird. Someone has tried to attack her on multiple occasions, but every trace of any encounter with this mystery person is erased minutes afterwards and Nora begins to question whether these encounters have even happened at all.
