The A-Word picks up pretty much within days of where The Sweet Dead Life leaves off. Jenna is slowly trying to get back to normal, hanging out with her BFF Maggie and even trying to catch the eye of a certain sexy football player, Ryan. Jenna has accepted that fact that her life will never be the same. Her brother is a ANGEL or A-Word as Jenna like to say still having problems saying the actual word. "EMT" Amber, Casey's "angel boss" still remains close by to keep an eye on Casey and Jenna. Casey doesn't understand why he still remains earth-bound especially after he's used up his ability to fly after saving Jenna. He did what he was sent to do, to protect Jenna. Why hasn't he moves on?
Amber suddenly becomes more and more distracted and distant. Something's going on. Jenna and Casey need to find out what. Out of the blue, a dead sexy older man named Bo, "Bo Shivers" (what a name! ;)) comes into the picture and he may end up being the key to finding out what's going on with Amber. Bo happens to be Amber's "Angel Boss" and knows more than he's letting on. Although, the main reason Bo is hanging around is Jenna but why? More mysteries than ever come out in The A-Word. Why is Amber acting strange, and how really did she die? Who is Bo Shivers and why is so attracted to Jenna. Will Casey even get to leave and be accepted into Heaven? Mostly, how is this all related to what happen last year?
All of these answers and more are revealed in The A-Word. You won't want to miss it!
There was so much going on this this book that at times I was confused to where the story was going. Once again I wanted MORE of the paranormal aspect added and while yes there was a lot about angels, I just wasn't enthralled by it. At times, I was even kind of bored. While book one gave me a good mystery, The A-Word fell short for me. I wasn't feeling Jenna's character as much as I did in book one. I also ended up really not caring much for Amber. Her story was just not very interesting at times for me.
The A-Word was very likale and has many great qualities. I feel more of the younger crown may take more from this one more so than I did. All in all, I will admit it was a fun read. Jenna is just a funny as ever, and I loved seeing her grow-up and fall in love. I really enjoyed seeing more of the secondary characters Maggie and Ryan get more of a involving role in The A-Word. They really bring the book together near the end nicely.
A definite read for Middle-Grade/YA readers but just as fun for adults never the less. :)(less)

I loved it a lot. The character was very fun to read about and the storyline was amazing but I found the beginning of the book somewhat slow. I feel the author did not really get into what Patch was and all the action and amazing storyline until the middle-end of the book. I know she was building up the characters and storyline a lot which is good but I would have liked it to have gone a little faster to grab my attention more early on. Other than that I really enjoyed Hush, Hush. I have never read a novel with Fallen Angels. You read more into Patch's life and Nora find out some amazing things about his past. Somethings they both have to fight for in the end of the book. The love-hate romance between Nora and Patch was so enjoyable to read and I found myself falling for him. The author leaves you at the end wanting more and I would surely say who would not want more of Patch! (less)
