Waiting on Wednesday (7) - Crescendo

Becca Fitzpatrick
Publisher: Simon and Schuster Children’s
To be released: October 19, 2010

Summary (from Goodreads):

The sequel to the New York Times Best selling phenomenon, Hush, Hush! 

Nora should have know her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.

The farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

I am a huge Hush, Hush fan and cannot wait to see where Becca takes us in Crescendo. I have been dying to read this since I heard she was writing a sequel. I love Patch and cannot wait to see what happens next with Nora and Patch. And once again, the cover is lovely. James Porto is an amazing photograph and has made another beautiful cover for this book series. Now, if only it was October…

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event highlighting exciting upcoming releases. It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.


  1. Haven't read Hush Hush an not sure I want to since I doubt I could use it in my classroom and I have heard some pretty despairing things about its content. Still I know it has been a popular book so I am sure that those who liked it are anxious for the sequel.

  2. Very excited for this one. I didn't love Hush Hush as much as many people, but enough that I can't wait to read the second book.
