Well? Don't know what to write. Srsly. If I'd have to describe Hushed in one sentence, I'd say that it's like poor version of Crime and Punishment for young adults. There's all there - a tormented hero (Raskolnikov) - the crime (with different reasons) - the best friend like Razumichin and the heroine with the twist, since Viv wasn't as saint as Sonya, but she was as bad. And it's just stupid to compare Dostoyevsky and York, so I will shut up.There was nothing wrong with this book, the plot was "fresh" - I haven't read anything like this in YA, but it feels like the autor couldn't decide what all that's about. Was it about the crime(s)? Was it about coming of age? Was it about coming out? Was it about grief and loss? Was it about trust and love? Seems the autor couldn't decide. Me, neither.But I still liked this book.
