Holy hot list Batman! Step aside and watch out for Patch! ~ Sheila
Exactly what is a girl to do? Here we have Nora – she does ok for herself. Keeps her nose clean, does her school work fair enough, and spends a lot of time alone while her mom travels for work. Then along comes Patch and I have to say if you enjoyed the Twilight series… he has an “Ewardesque” quality to him. He is dark, brooding, secretive, smoldering good looks – and well…. did Nora really have a chance?
This is our story line to Becca Fitzpatrick’s debut book and ever since I seen the rumblings on blogs and on twitter I couldn’t wait to put my hands and my eyes on this book. Becca comes through in all aspects of this read and as a YA read this is a must. Wherever Nora goes Patch mysteriously seems to turn up… and at first what seems odd and annoying turns into something more for Nora as there are other forces working around her and she discovers that Patch is really the least of her worries…
Wonderfully dangerous characters mixed in with the high school group… did we all have them? I think back and can think of one guy from high school that reminds me of Patch. Hmmmm…. I wonder….
A book that keeps you turning the pages and thinking about it after it is done. This is one that will stick with me and I am hopeful that Becca Fitzpatrick is wielding her pen and tapping that keyboard now creating another read – because she has indeed created a fan.
Author Becca Fitzpatrick grew up reading Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden with a flashlight under the covers. She graduated college with a degree in health, which she promptly abandoned for storytelling. When not writing, she’s most likely prowling sale racks for reject shoes, running, or watching crime dramas on TV. Her first novel, the YA thriller Hush, Hush, was published in 2009.
