This special paperback edition of the third book in the New York Times bestselling Hush, Hush saga features exclusive content!

Nora Grey can’t remember the past five months of her life. After the initial shock of waking up in a cemetery and being told that she has been inexplicably missing for weeks, she tries to get her life back on track. So she goes to school, hangs with her best friend, Vee, and dodges her mom’s creepy new boyfriend.

But there is this voice in the back of her head, an idea that she can almost reach out and touch. Visions of angel wings and unearthly creatures that have nothing to do with the life she knows. And an unshakable feeling that a part of her is missing.

Then Nora crosses paths with a sexy stranger, with whom she feels a mesmerizing connection. He seems to hold all the answers...and her heart. Every minute she spends with him feels more and more intense until she realizes she could be falling in love. Again.

This paperback edition features exclusive bonus content and enticingly sets the stage for the series conclusion, Finale.

For a strange suspended moment, an image of crooked teeth came to mind, and then I saw them for what they really were. Gravestones.

I tried to push myself up to sitting, but my hands slipped on the wet grass.... see more

When Nora wakes up in the middle of a graveyard, she doesn’t know how much her life is about to change. As a matter of fact . . . she doesn’t know much of anything. She doesn’t remember a single thing about the past five months, including the fact that she’s been missing—kidnapped—for eleven weeks. Her mom and Vee are happy to have Nora home, but they also seem to be hiding something from her. How much do they know? How much will Nora eventually remember?

Discussion Questions

· How does being kidnapped change the way that Nora is treated by her family and friends? In what ways does her kidnapping change how Nora feels?

· In Chapter 10, Nora says of her amnesia that “ignorance was the lowest form of humiliation and suffering.” Do you agree with this assessment? Are there any benefits to her amnesia? Does the fact that she eventually learns what has happened to her put Nora in a better position?
