Leo's Angel Oak Tree

I wanted to take some time today to celebrate a supporting character in one of my favorite series.  She's one of the unsung heroes of Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush, Hush novels.  Yes, Nora and Patch are fantastic, but while I have every one's attention, I want to shine the light on the sidekick of the book.

Vee Sky is Nora's gal pal, and as she puts it her "un-twin," with her green eyes, murky blond hair, and her womanly figure. Besides their physical differences, Vee is far more interested in boys, and isn't afraid to get into a little trouble. I'm sorry, I meant a gigantic amount of trouble. 

And she usually gets Nora mixed up in the chaos.  This is what I love about Vee.  She's the one that Nora should trust, but if I were Nora, I'd have to look at her track record.  She's hilarious, unpredictable, loud, and totally lovable. 

Nora can't resist her and neither can I! Here are some of Vee's best lines:

"Put the damn measuring tape away" Vee ordered."I already know my size. I don't need reminding."
-Vee [to Sales Assistant] (Hush Hush)

"The verdict? My doctor is a lard-arse. Closely resembles an Oompa-Loompa."
-Vee [to Nora] (Hush Hush)

"Don't make me regret allowing you to you to choose your own partners",Coach told us."Don't make me regret coming to school today"said Vee sweetly.
- Coach And Vee (Hush Hush)
