Hush by Stacey R. Campbell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This young adult read was enjoyable and relaxing. I enjoyed the pace and the conflicting feelings of the characters in trying to make the situation best, figuring out who fits where. Max is a good guy who set out on an honorable mission, but finds his feelings getting tangled in the process. I really liked Max's character and his morals and sense of right.
I also love reading about kids in boarding schools. It seems so interesting that some children get to leave their parents to gain individualism so early in life. Plus who doesn't dream that they will find out they are a princess??
I was given this book to provide an honest review for and I genuinely liked the slow pace from apocalyptic panic that I had been reading. There are mysteries to be solved in this story and surprises here and there, but the nice, slow pace was a great change.
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?
