I read Hush, Hush and gave it one star. I had hoped that the second book in the series would be better. I hoped that Becca Fitzpatrick would have learned from her mistakes and listened to critics. But, she didn't. Crescendo may actually be worse than Hush,Hush.

Nora has become even more brainless and unbearable. Patch has become an bigger jerkass. As for the other characters - they are all either annoying or cliche or just flat. Though, I will admit to liking Marcie. I get the feeling I'm supposed to hate her, because Nora thinks she is a slut and BF has her say the most hurtful things at random times, but - I kind of like Marcie. At least she has somewhat of a personality.

Overall, I really dislike these characters and the plot is even more nonsensical here. But, I'm really not the audience this book is looking for. It's for 12-17 year old who love Twilight. Or people who are bored and want a fluffy read that they don't have to think about. Or goldfish. Goldfish would love this book.
