Crescendo – Becca Fitzpatrick

Are YOU ready ?!? I know I was, and Crescendo does NOT disappoint in the least!

We left Nora in the gym of her school at the end of Hush, Hush, well I don’t have to tell you how or why or any of it right? You have already gasped, been frightened down to your toes about whether Nora is saved right?

Ok, now that we are all on the same page, this time Nora is having thoughts about why and how her father really died.

Then there is that whole thing about her guardian angel Patch and her in a relationship with him which, really shouldn’t be happening, but it is and Nora is so in love with Patch it makes her sick when she isn’t around him.  Patch is hiding his feelings, as we all probably know by now that all or most guys do that so they aren’t being too girly with all that mushy stuff right?

So, anyways, just a bit off topic here, but really, I’m getting to the point.  She has the same best friend in the world, the same bullies at high school especially one Marcie Millar that has always does one thing or another to totally make Nora thinking of doing mean and nasty things back.  There is really a hidden meaning to all of this hated and angst between the two that Nora wasn’t aware of until now.

So, as the story goes as fast as I am reading and pages are literally flying out of the book (they really did at the end).

Her relationship with Patch reaches a point where something she never imagined happens, she knows what she feels, but what she doesn’t know that Patch is keeping from her may well hurt her in the end as well, even as he really wants to tell her how he really feels about her.

There are a few new characters that are introduced into the mix –  Patch’s best friend who is also one of those hunky, gorgeous angels so to speak, then there is a boy who moved back that Nora used to know who has major problems of his own.  Once Nora is introduced into all of this, all of the pieces fall into place about her father’s murder, her background in all of this, and a few other tidbits that will have you flipping the pages as fast or maybe even faster than you can read to the end where it all comes to a head one way or another.


Will Nora found out the real truth behind how she feels? the things that are being kept from her? As well as all of the other things she doesn’t quite know everything about right now to make her see the full picture?  Trust me, if you thought the end to Hush, Hush was spectacular, wait until you get to the end of this one…you will be craving more.

Did I happen to mention that there will be a THIRD book? Yep, that’s right ! More Nora and Patch !!
