In my search for Colorado authors to feature here on Mondays, I’ve made a few exciting discoveries. Today’s author, Becca Fitzpatrick, was a wonderful surprise.
Becca’s first novel, Hush, Hush, is a YA paranormal romance from Simon & Schuster that debuted at #10 on the New York Times Bestseller List in October 2009. For the story behind the novel, click on the book title above.
From the synopsis at Becca’s website:
“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 them at her. Not until Patch came along.
…Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen – and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.”
Perhaps fallen archangels will now replace vampires in the hearts and minds of teen readers. The cover alone makes me wish I had a teenager in my family to shop for this holiday season. I have put myself on the Hold list for a library copy and will be reporting on this very successful debut novel as soon as I can.
