When Sydney is torn from her bed in the middle of the night, at first she thinks she’s still being punished for her complicated alliance with dhampir Rose Hathaway. But what unfolds is far worse. Jill Dragomir - the sister of Moroi Queen Lissa Dragomir - is in mortal danger, and the Moroi must send her into hiding. To avoid a civil war, Sydney is called upon to act as Jill’s guardian and protector, posing as her roommate in the unlikeliest of places: a human boarding school in Palm Springs, California. The last thing Sydney wants is to be accused of sympathizing with vampires. And now she has to live with one.

The Moroi court believe Jill and Sydney will be safe at Amberwood Prep, but threats, distractions, and forbidden romance lurk both outside-and within- the school grounds. Now that they’re in hiding, the drama is only beginning.

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Picture

Published September 1, 2010 by Simon & Schuster

Picture
Hush, Hush  is, at its root, a story about a boy and a girl. But this is not your typical love at first sight, happily ever after book. Nora is less than impressed with Patch's mocking laughter, his evasion when asked personal questions, and his blasé attitude towards their school assignment. She also can't help but notice his too handsome face and wicked eyes. Nora puts up a good fight, but how long can she last against Patch's charisma? Things are not always as they seem. Nora has heard things that cannot be explained, and seen things that seemed to vanish into thin air. All she knows is something is going on, someone seems to be following her and she's not entirely sure it isn't Patch.
