Galley? Yes
Would you like to nominate this book for Teens’ Top Ten? No
If yes, what makes this book special enough to be nominated for Teens’ Top Ten?
What did you like or not like about the cover? Did the cover reflect the contents? The cover reflected the contents. The kid's hair totally looks like a bad wig though.
Describe the most compelling aspect of the book. The possibility of there being an angel who really listens and acts upon your prayers.
Were you disappointed with the book for any reason? If so, what was disappointing? I was looking for a supernatural book, and thought this might be one. It wasn't.
Did you finish the book Yes
How would you rate this book? 3 Readable
Please write a short annotation for this book if you think it should be on the Teens Top Ten List.
Additional Comments (Please type or paste your review here) Pretty much the only reason I picked this up is because I'm looking for more fiction where angels are characters. As a book by itself it was mediocre. It disappointed me greatly and I might have liked it if it had had a better author.
