Hush: An Irish Princess' Tale - Donna Jo Napoli My library has this shelved in the juvenile section, but I'd be pretty hesitant to actually suggest this one to anyone in elementary school. For the record, that's because I fear the wrath of parents, not because I actually think children would be damaged by reading "adult content".

Anyway, ugh, I am so disappointed. In the copy of this that I read, there was a preview chapter for another of Donna Jo Napoli's books at end of the story, and it was like being hit with a hammer. I was totally not expecting the book to be over, because NOTHING WAS RESOLVED.

I mean, I don't need a tidy ending where everything ends happily and all the answers are given. But I do expect a few answers, you know, to the lingering questions that have been in play since the first third of the novel. Gah. I feel like that was a waste of time.
