Hush, Hush Chapter 1

By Becca Fitzpatrick

Chapter 1

  • Nora's tenth-grade bio class is starting its unit on human reproduction. Much joking and giggling ensues.
  • The bio teacher, Coach McConaughy, decides to switch up the seating chart. Nora used to be next to her best friend Vee, but now she's stuck to the quiet transfer student. Bummer.
  • Coach gives them an assignment to interview their new seatmates and write up their findings.
  • The transfer, Patch, ignores Nora's questions, spending most of the time flirting with her instead. He already knows super-specific details about Nora even though this is their first interaction. Creepy.
  • Nora rebuffs his advances.
