Wednesday's Favorites: Hush by Stacey R. Campbell

Welcome to Maureen's Books Wednesday's Favorites. In the Wednesday's Favorites post I will talk about a book I loved and that I think deserves a little more attention. I read popular books, but also many books that aren’t so popular (yet). In this post all sorts of books from all sorts of genre’s will have a chance to shine. Today’s Wednesday's Favorites is 'Hush' by Stacey R. Campbell, a book I read in August 2015.

The Book:


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16488672-hush
For small-town girl Blakely Henry, any hope of finding her biological parents died when she stopped believing in fairy tales and Disney princesses. That is, until she spots her boarding school’s new British exchange student, Max Ryder, staring at her. Why would a boy who looks like he stepped out of the pages of a magazine be looking at her? Because Max knows something Blakely doesn’t.

Following the tragic demise of one of Europe’s most beloved royal families, Max has stumbled upon information he thinks may lead to a lost royal heir, and now he is on a quest halfway around the world to see if he’s right.

Sworn to secrecy by his university professor and the headmaster of Lakeview Academy, Max is admitted into an exchange program with the sole purpose of finding out the truth. But will his personal feelings for Blakely get in the way?

When a stolen email surfaces, Blakely and her friends’ lives are threatened, and Max starts to question what he is really after.

From the exclusive rolling lawns of Canada’s most prestigious boarding school to the University of Saint Andrews’ hallowed grounds, Blakely’s quiet, unassuming life is turned upside down. Is she really who she thinks she is? Can she survive long enough to help Max unearth the truth?

Praise for 'Hush':


Needless to say ‘Hush’ is jam packed with mystery, suspense, fun, and a little love. It is the perfect mixture of everything that makes a good book.

Each book in this series does pretty well standing on its own and I’m really glad there wasn’t a cliffhanger. It’s nice to get the answers to things and have a good conclusion. I definitely recommend!

I enjoyed Hush so much that I had to read Whisper immediately and now I’m getting ready to read Scream.

Overall this book was a very nice relaxing read and it definitely made me interested in reading the next books in this series. I would especially recommend this book to the younger YA reading crowd. I would have adored this book in my teens!!

About the Author:


Stacey R. Campbell lives in the San Juan Islands with her husband and three daughters. She is a graduate of the University of Washington and a dyslexic writer that believes there is no such thing as a bad reader.  She is the author of the young adult novels ‘Hush’, ‘Whisper’, ‘Silence’ & ‘Scream’ and the highly acclaimed middle grade swashbuckling Pirate book ‘ARRGH’!

When not at her desk writing she can be found hiking, sailing, or skiing. She enjoys chocolate in any shape or size, too many cups of coffee and laughing (often too loudly as her daughters say) with her friends and family.

Stacey is available for classroom visits via Skype and loves working with writers and readers of any age; especially those with learning disabilities like her own.
