For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes tham at her. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgement.
Hardcover, 120 pages

Sorry, BB, but OH SHIT NO.

The only good thing about this book is that that placeholder cover confirmed one of my assertions: baseball caps are not hot. IN THE LEAST. EVER.


Edit: okay, so I have a sick sense of curiosity, but I Googled this and came up with some more sketches. I have to say, the artist got Patch and Nora down. He looks like an asshole and she looks like an airhead. Well done!

This is the old cover that I'm talking about in my review, just so I don't sound like a raving lunatic:



This has got to be the creepiest and most awkward cover I've ever seen.

What is he even doing? I mean, just look at the pose! It looks like he's either going to:
A. Go play some weird version of angel football
B. Just jumped through Nora's window and is about go kill her (out of love, of course)
C. Is extremely constipated and in dire need to take a shit

I'm going to say a mix of B and C because...more

Is this the new fad in the YA world? Every series must have a graphic novel. Please, spare us the misery!

This graphic novel is SHITTY.

I love the Hush Hush Novel but this! This is just unacceptable. The illustrations are nothing like them and IT IS NOT THEM. This is not patch and nora. The cover is a buff man maybe in his 30's give or take. Patch is a teenager-ish in looks and is lean and taut not beefy. Just right in physique. So I am very disappointed. No offense to the illustrator but This Sucks :I

Not sure how I feel about this....I love graphic novels but not graphic novel adoptions of books. I feel like it takes away from the original image we create in our minds when reading. You know, like when you imagine a character then you open up the graphic novel and you're all like "HELL NO! HE DOES NOT LOOK LIKE THAT!" Or maybe that's just me. Either way, I'll probably read the first couple pages and then put it down. Like I said, I'm not sure how I feel about this but promise me one thing: NO...more

I Have One Thing To Say About This Book!

WHAT THE HELL!?

Okay, here are the give aways to my 'What The Hell?!':
1. Nora looks like a [beep]when wearing the clothes. No offense but she does.
2. When the attacker is supposed to have grabbed her shoulder he grabbed her wrist instead.
3. The wardrobe: Nuh uh! The skirt she wore was practically underwear! And she rips on Marcie about her clothes. And the shirt she was wearing wouldn't be even allowed to probab;y worn at school.
4. Their teeth look hideou...more

I don't really like to read graphic novel versions of books, because a) I already know the story so it isn't really exciting for me, and b) I like the version of the stories in my head. But I decided to read the graphic novel version of Hush, Hush because I was curious and, well, for Patch.

The main reason I wanted to read it? I wanted to see some of those steamy scenes between Nora and Patch. For example, I was looking forward to that awesome kitchen scene (all you fans know exactly what scene I...more

I really don't know why I decided to torture myself. Really don't. I'm just going to say that reading this in graphic novel form really highlights all of the sexism and disgusting behavior that permeated the actual book. You get to see the coach in all of his disturbing, student-traumatizing glory. Patch acting like the stalker-douchebag that he truly is, all the while wearing baseball caps (I don't remember him wearing a hat in every scene in the book, but that's just me). And Nora truly looks...more

Hrm. Well th sketches are...odd.

It actually makes the characters even more boring to me when I had figured the oposite. I thought Nora had dark hair! Lmao.

Also is anyone else really curious exactly how fat Vee is going to be? The book makes it a constant thing but they're always euphemizing it, so now I confess myself interested even though the book should have just done the physical description and left it at that, I don't see why "Vee is chubby" has to be a constant point of characterization u...more

Ummmm....where is the rest of the book? That is the first thing I want to know. This is list priced at $19.95 and it only covers the first 5 chapters of the book?!

So, there really isn't much to say about the summary of this. We meet the characters, Nora, Patch and Vee. Patch teases Nora, Nora doesn't like Patch and feels stalked by him. Mystery man breaks through Vee's windshield to get at Nora. That's it! Nothing more. Seriously. I feel this was a half inch thick teaser.

Hush, Hush is one of those series that I really enjoyed and so I decided to pick up this graphic novel. I have a couple problems with this graphic novel mostly about Patch and Nora. I didn't really imagine Patch or Nora looking like they were depicted in the graphic novel. Nora is supposed to be kind a smart and conservative girl but in this graphic novel she dressed very inappropriate and slutty. I mean Nora looked like she was wearing a half shirt. It's kind of hypocritical that Nora and Vee w...more

This graphic novel took me two days to read. TWO! And it's only an hour read, at the most for me.

I'm going to talk about the art of the book because I already reviewed the book, and lets face it: I only bought it for the art.

We got a sneak peek of the art throughout last year and were even given the whole prologue months before the novel hits shelves. I had hope that the artist(s) would be able to bring characters I like to life.

I gave this graphic novel 1 star.

This graphic novel is a fun little refresher of the first novel.

In all honesty, I wasn't a huge fan of the artwork. Nora, in my humble opinion, is a wee bit too "smexy" in a not-so-"smexy" kinda way (i.e. hipbones jutting out and cold rooms exposed by thin t-shirts *yuck*). And poor Vee was not at all how I pictured her. The panels at times have an awkward flow to them. And unless you've read the novel, the story seems choppy and lacking, not to mention, confusing.

The extra story was a quick,...more

I thought this graphic novel was not only beautifully drawn out, but also really made it simple to picture along with what goes on in the story. I've recently discovered graphic novels and I have to say I am becoming a big fan of them! I loved Hush, Hush and now owning the graphic novel made me love the book even more. I can't wait for the second part of the graphic novel to come out!! It's stopped on e things started getting good lol
Loved it a lot, obviously a quick read. If you're a fan of gr...more

NOT as great as how i thought it would be....EVERY FREAKIN GIRL IN HERE IS MADE TO LOOK LIKE A SLUT!? WHY?! Nora is SUPPOSED TO BE CONSERVATIVE AND SMART! D:< and Vee looks like a guy....not cool...the stories pretty much the same. Overall, i like the book SO much more...

I got this book earlier than I was suppose to.

Was I happy?
Yes.

Am I happy after reading this?
Not exactly.

I hate the drawings of Vee. She looks, no offense, like a fat guy with some girl expressions and "mom-jeans". I have harsher thoughts but I'm not in the mood for bad-mouthed comments.

The first drawing of Patch has him looking like he has no "junk". I mean, it was a sexy picture but then you look down and can't help but ask, "where is the buldge?" I'm not crazy about the drawings of Patch, but...more

As a big fan of comics and graphic novels I'm ashamed I waited so long for this book! First it kept getting pushed back. Month after month after month! When if finally did become available, you could never find it at any book store. So I turned to ordering, which took forever...now after seeing it and reading it I'd like my money back.

First off the graphic portion was bad. Patch looked like a boy who was just hitting puberty in most of the panels. Vee was suppose to be more curvier and have lon...more

I am a big fan of the Hush Hush Series by Becca Fitzpatrick. When Patrick from Sea Lion Books offered me a chance to review this before it comes out in March, so I decided to jump at the chance and review it. This is the first Graphic Novel I have read so this is a new experience for me. First I must say I actually really liked reading this as a graphic novel, it was neat having pictures to go along with the storyline. Second I really like how each character is depicted. The only thing I didn't...more

So I've read a lot of horrible comments on this graphic novel, but I decided to fish out 20 dollars anyways cuz.... I actually don't know why .-.

I thought they really kept the dialogue like the book, but the characters...oh man. The characters.

Nora, our stupid but loved Nora, looks like Marcie. Am I the only one who didn't know what the F was going on in the beginning because of this? I thought she was Marcie. Nora is drawn barely wearing any clothes, and her tots (I'm going to say tots.) are sh...more

I'm sad to say I wasn't impressed with this graphic novel. I felt the dialog was choppy and the illustrations were so-so. Also, this is only the first part of the book, and it cuts off awkwardly.

The extra short story that takes place between Hush, Hush and Crescendo was a pleasant surprise.

Overall it was nice to kind of go back and remember the first book in the series but I think I would have rather just re-read the novel.

PLEASE. Stop.

I can't even explain how the sketches are wrong. Nora is a SLUT in this 'novel.' Patch is nothing like I imagined. Vee is a girl who has really, really, REALLY short hair, is the same size as Nora, and has dark hair, but apparently Nora is a bad describer and accidentally stated that Vee is taller, Vee is curvier, and Vee is a blonde. Oops.

Anyways, I'm disappointed. I expected more.
Charlotte
...that guy on the cover is by no means a lean teenager; that is a creepy, muscle-man MAN. That is not Patch. I have pictured Patch, and that is not Patch. Patch is Artemis Fowl, only older and, uh, with wings. In my head, at least. NO. NO.


...I don't care or anything. The series is crappy and stuff. I won't read this book. Not even to make fun of it. No. No.
