hush, hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up—High school sophomore Nora Grey, a dedicated student striving for a college scholarship, lives with her widowed mother in a country farmhouse outside Portland, ME. When Patch, her new biology partner, is suddenly thrust into her life, Nora is both attracted to his charm and put off by his inexplicable awareness of her thoughts. Eventually, she learns that he is a fallen angel who wants to become human. She is susceptible to his control, but other forces are at work as well, and Nora finds herself caught in the middle of dangerous situations and unexplainable events.
I found this book to be a very different read  and would recommend it for those more mature female readers in Grade eight and definately for the  girls going into Highschool. This YA novel is filled with suspense, mystery, romance and the supernatural and definately leaves the door open for another installment between Patch and Nora!
