    Title of review: 8th Grade, Ritchie County Middle School; great book
    Number of stars (1 to 5):

    Introduction
    Jacqueline Woodson yet again shows of her brilliance in her book entitled Hush. Woodson creates a reality of the Green family's troubles and dilemmas.
    Description and summary of main points
    Toswiah Green has her whole world flipped upside down when her father chooses to testify against a fellow policeman. Toswiah and her family are forced to change their identity, but this is the least of her problems. The Greens were forced to keep quiet about everything going on in their lives.

    I love how the book was such an unusual situation. The majority of the book was unexpected.
    Conclusion
    Woodson produces an amazing piece of work.

    Good for young reader

    this book is good for younger readers. I personally found it a bit dull when comapred to the other books I've read and felt it could use deeper characters. The main character is likable and you do feel sorry for her as she wacthed her family fall apart.

    Great Book

    This was an outstanding book. I read it from the library. I could not even return it. I think that it is important for young people and has a great moral to it.

    Loved It!!

    Can you imagine having to change your whole life? Loose your best friend, your home and everything you love? Well that¿s what happened to Toswiah, a twelve-year-old girl who had the ¿typical¿ life of a teen. In this fictional story Toswiah and her family had to move because her father was a witness in a crime. This whole thing turned into a racial issue. Their lives started to be in danger because some people didn¿t want her father to tell the truth about the crime. The family had to move and change their identities, but this was just the beginning of their new life and they also changed their personalities and their actions because of the hard situation they went through. Toswiah¿s father spends most of his time looking out the window, her mom has found a new religion that she is so involved in, and her sister is making some sort of plan to get out of the house. Then there is Toswiah, feeling very lost, frustrated, and very lonely, who can¿t express her feelings to anybody. I have never read a book this intense, powerful and interesting. Jacqueline Woodson tells the life of a young girl in such a realistic way that you can actually feel the sadness and the pain that Toswiah went through. I recommend this book to anyone who has been through any situation that has made them change their life forever.

    Not too bad, Not too good.

    I really liked the idea of it but I think it could be takin to the next level. I think Jacqueline Woodson could have put more into it about how it was after they were put into the Witness Protection Program and maybe what happened after the story. Like 10 years later or something.

    Hush Review by Janaera J. Jenkins

    I thought Hush was pretty good. It was sad but it makes you think about all the stuff you take for granted and makes you wonder what you would be like if you were in this kind of situation. I am a very young author and I think it was terrificly written!

    I was dissapointed

    I had to read it for my English class, and it was a black eyed Susan book, so I thought it would be pretty good, but after I read it I was disappointed. The beginning was good, but the rest of the book was pretty dry to me. I wouldn't recommend it, but some other people in my class thought it was an okay book.
