For the first book in a YA series, this was alright. I expect the first-in-series to be a little off so I have high hopes for the next book to be much better. Now I'm not saying I didn't like it. I enjoyed a diversion from the vampire saturated market, that today's YA fiction has become. The mythology of Hush, Hush unfolds for the main character Nora as she delves deeper into the dark and tangled world of the mysterious guy Patch.
I'm eager to see Nora's character develop, as she was a bit flighty and twitchy. If Nora's emotions and decisions in this book were a car, it would be swerving all over the damn road causing devastating accidents. It's a bit annoying and distracting from the story. I'm also not a fan of her friend Vee who seems to be just as superficial and fickle as the girls that pick on her for her weight.
All in all I am looking forward to reading the second book Crescendo and seeing how the plot develops from there.
