    "Read this along with a friend. When I saw the movie version years ago, i was not impressed wit it at all so I was not expecting much from the book. The book is geared for young people but has things that all can appreciate, surprisingly deep and accurate on Greek History as well."

    "Hush Hush is pretty good as far as romantic novels go. It introduces a mysterious/dark element to it that gets away from the over-the-top silliness of most romcoms. Patch's background is resolved nicely and satisfyingly by the end of the story."

Well, they asked about a novel set in a boarding school. I immediately said "Oh... Bloomability!" Turns out, I was wrong this book is about a nomadic family."
