"Hush, Hush" first introduced us to these characters, and Becca totally carries the story through in "Crescendo." Nora and Patch start out together, but a fight leads to a tumultuous break up. Somehow Marcie is in the mix, along with a lot of danger. Throw in so many bad choices by Nora (not staying home, B&E, fights, etc.) and you have a roller coaster ride through the book. Who is in control? Who is the Black Hand? Who tried to kill Nora? Is Patch a good or bad guy? What about Scott? Rixon? The answers to these questions await within the pages of "Crescendo!"
I was thrilled to receive an advance copy of this book and discuss it with others at B&N. Because I hadn't read, "Hush, Hush," I bought and read that first and recommend it to everyone. The background is there. Becca Fitzpatrick has a great way of weaving a story for her characters that keeps her readers actively involved. I can't wait for the next book, which doesn't come out until next year. :(
